Committee initiatives:

  • Make IDP presentations to students and firms and serve as a resource for questions.
  • Develop and deliver ARE reviews and promote the ARE Lending Library.
  • Encourage licensure through materials that outline the path to licensure and through information sessions at the University of Minnesota.

Chair: Meg Parsons, AIA, and Mandi Tauferner, Assoc. AIA
Staff liaison: Deanna Christiansen
