Earn up to 18 AIA/CES learning units including 17.5 HSW

This year, ArchEx is going to be incredible. Internationally recognized TED presenter Marc Kushner, AIA is the keynote speaker. He’s the founder of Architizer and his talk is going to completely blow you away.

We’re partnering with ASLA Virginia, AIAS, and more than 70 amazing designers from all over the country who will be sharing their expertise on topics ranging from BIM to Frank Lloyd Wright to Smart Buildings.

The theme is collaboration, so we’ve worked to create a place and space where designers can come together to exchange ideas, build their professional networks, and grow. You’ll see old friends. You’ll make new ones. Plus, you can earn up to 18 AIA/CES learning units. We promise it’s going to be great.
