A’18 MN – The Conference on Architecture
November 13, 14, 15, 16

Minneapolis Convention Center

Continuing Education

AIA Minnesota is offering Continuing Education credit for programs at the Conference. All credits listed are pending AIA approval. According to our review, Conference programs marked as HSW and the two programs marked for ethics will be accepted for Minnesota’s CE requirement for licensing. Take advantage of this economical and efficient way to get the credits you need for your AIA and State of Minnesota licensing CE requirements, as well as those to maintain your LEED accreditation. Online recording of your attendance is encouraged. Paper verification forms will be available at the Conference Registration Desk. 

The program is also available for Download.
