Professional Development Programming Transitions Online

Just because we can’t get together in person doesn’t mean that your professional development has to stop. We’ll be transitioning AIA Virginia’s educational programming online and offering members opportunities to earn HSW credits throughout the coming months. Watch your email and our calendar for announcements about new courses.

Most of our sessions will take place at noon on Wednesdays, but the schedule might vary from time-to-time, depending on instructor availability.  

AIA Virginia, in collaboration with local chapters across Virginia and AIA West Virginia, will create a shared calendar of events on the Inform Magazine platform launching in late April. We’ll also work together to develop a repository of recorded courses that offer credit for those members who can’t participate in the live sessions.

Sun Sets on the SD Requirement

Recognizing that sustainable design practices have become a mainstream design intention in the architectural community, the Board of Directors has voted to allow the sustainable design education requirement to sunset at the end of calendar year 2012.

AIA members will no longer need to complete the sustainable design requirement to fulfill their AIA continuing education.

For 2013, AIA members are required to satisfy a minimum of 18 LUs per year. Of this total, 12 must meet the Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) criteria.
