The 2020 ARE Prep Sessions, led by Associate Directors Ellie Thomas and Richard Carlos, are back on for the 2020 year. Starting this March, we will be hosting a monthly session focusing on a specific exam with a guest speaker knowledgeable on the topics, and from our own architectural professional community. Every third month will feature a Trivia night where we will cover curriculum of the previous 2 exams. 

The sessions will be held with food and drink, video-web conferencing capability for those remoting in, and the sessions, themselves, will be recorded. 

The first two sessions are free to non-AIA Members, then a $30 fee will be applied to non-members in any following sessions for the year. Any session paid for by a non-member will be reimbursed/deducted from their membership fee if they choose to become a member later in the year. 

Watch for the email for session sign up or subscribe here and your contact will be added to our ARE Prep distribution list.
