AIA Minnesota’s mission for continuing education is to produce high quality, affordable programs offered regularly throughout the year. Topics are selected and developed by architects in order to address timely issues and to meet the diverse needs of our members.

Community-Led Urbanism as a Foundation for Equitable and Regenerative Cities

This program was scheduled to be the closing keynote address at the A’22 MN Conference. Due to illness, the presentation was not able to happen. We are now scheduling Jason Twill, LEED Fellow, to present this keynote presentation in early March. The presentation will be followed by a one-on-one conversation between Jason and Paul D. Bauknight, Jr., an urbanist, advocate, community builder, and architectural designer.

The presentation will be virtual via Zoom. Registration will open soon.

    ARE Reviews

    Plans are being made to schedule three ARE Review sessions this spring.

    1. ARE 101 – Hear what a few architects who have recently taken and passed the exam have to say about their experience. Hear how they studied and what study materials they used; their thoughts behind the order in which they took the exams; the process for scheduling and about how long each step of the process took; what the testing center was like; and tips for taking the exam on the computer. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and get answers that will help your process be smooth and less stressful.
    2. Practice Management and Project Management
    3. Construction & Evaluation

    Details coming soon!
