Both the American Institute and the State of New York recognize continuing education in architecture is crucial to advancing and improving the profession.  Presently, 45 states across the country have mandatory continuing education in order to continue to practice as an architect.

As part of this commitment, AIA New York State and the local Chapters of the AIA provide a broad selection of programs.  Please check with a local chapter or the events page of the AIANYS website to view a selection of offerings.
