The Northern Virginia ARE Prep Series was awarded the Council of Architectural Component Executives (CACE) ARE Excellence Award at the recent CACE Annual Meeting in Detroit.

Selected from among chapters nationwide, AIA Northern Virginia was recognized “for designing a comprehensive ARE Prep Program that prepares emerging professionals for the ARE exam and at the same time offers AIA CE credits.”

Congratulations to the Young Architects Forum co-chairs Anna Barbour, AIA and Spencer Lepler, AIA and their committee for planning such an outstanding ARE program. Thank you to all the instructors and volunteers, and to the host locations – Jacobs for Structures, Dewberry for Building Systems, and especially to AECOM for hosting all of the Wednesday and Saturday sessions. The exceptional letters of support from both Rachael Johnson, AIA and Spencer Lepler, AIA were a fundamental piece of the submittal, demonstrating the impact of the program on their path to licensure.
