Congratulations in being a part of our First Class of 25 regarding achieving licensure through our Amber Book partnership. In light of COVID-19, we had temporarily suspended the program with Prometric centers being closed. Now, in light of recent information, we believe that the program can successfully continue and get you licensed expeditiously.
Please remember the original tenants of the program:
- The Amber Book will only be accessible for a two-month period. I will give you your personalized access code after you pay the commitment fee.
- Submit your payment of $50 online to AIA Virginia. This is the commitment fee. The regular cost for Amber Book as an individual is $390 per month which would total $780. One way to look at this is that this deal pays for two years of AIA Associate membership.
- You must commit to registering for all of your ARE exams within 30 days after the Amber Book enrollment ends.
- Send AIA Virginia firstname.lastname@example.org a screenshot proving you have registered for all of your exams.
- Let us know how many exams you pass on your first shot. You are our success story!
Please contact me, email@example.com with any questions or concerns you may have.
The 2020 graduating class from Virginia architecture schools is facing unprecedented challenges as they enter the workforce. If you would like to mentor a student and encourage them as they start in the profession, please sign-up below. Our expectation is that you would connect with an assigned graduate 2x a month to keep these young professionals engaged and connected to the profession.
- Through these forged relationships, keep recent graduates engaged in the profession of architecture during the recovery phase of a global pandemic and troubled economy
- Assuming personality chemistry is formed, these relationships become long-term friendships which is beneficial for career growth and exposure to career opportunities
- Good people know good people. Through these relationships, expose these emerging professionals to other AIA members thus expanding their professional network
- Keep recent architecture graduates in Virginia so that the profession and our own communities can reap the benefits of their contributions and leadership
