AIA Connecticut Committees

 

Opportunities for AIA Continuing Education Credit

We are happy to announce that AIA is now permitting some credit for continuing education for committee service. Serving on a committee is considered professional service. Architects can self report a maximum of two hours per year of professional/community service—such as design boards, code committees, AIA committees, disaster recovery consults/committees.

If members have had to do a lot of research for their committee service, such as studying planning issues, local code changes, etc., they can file a self report for research for the subject researched. It must be information that can be applied to the practice of architecture. Research is non-HSW, non-sustainable credit, but members can get credit for it.
