Part of AIA Virginia’s Strategic Plan is to enable Citizen Architects to expand their power to effect change.  Serving on a local Planning Commission is one way to do just that.  Planning Commissions advise the elected leadership on promoting the orderly development of the community.  To help you be more effective in your role, we have available a limited number of scholarships that will cover the cost of your registration at the 2018 American Planning Association Virginia Chapter Annual Conference at Wintergreen Resort.

The theme of the conference is Mountains of Influence and will be held July 22-25, 2018.  Each scholarship is valued at $50 which covers full registration for Planning Commissioners.  Included in this registration is breakfast on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; lunch on Monday and Tuesday, and receptions on Sunday and Tuesday evenings.

To apply for a registration scholarship, submit a letter of interest on letterhead to Corey Clayborne, AIA at cclayborne@aiava.org by no later than Friday, May 4.  To be eligible, you must be an AIA member in good standing and currently serve on your locality’s Planning Commission.  Recipients will be notified by May 31.
