AIA Northern Virginia
ARE Prep
Each year the AIA Northern Virginia Young Architects Forum organizes seminars for those preparing to take the Architect Registration Exam® (ARE). The award-winning seminars offer the opportunity to learn from a professional in each discipline and use that knowledge in preparation for the ARE. All sessions offer AIA Continuing Education credits. The 2018 schedule is posted below. Registration is available using the link below.

Once again, partnered with AECOM, AIA Northern Virginia extended the series to young members of AIA Blue Ridge, who attended the AECOM Roanoke offices to participate in a remote simulcast. This year we are pleased to welcome designers from the Hapmton Roads Chapter as well, where young designers can attend remotely from Work Program Architects in Norfolk.
