Professional Development

Successful architectural practice is dependent upon the continual pursuit of knowledge. AIA West Virginia is committed to the professional development of its members and is the definitive local resource for continuing education and mentorship.

In addition to the local efforts of AIA-WV, our National Component also provides great benefit to AIA Architects and Associates through a powerful web of Knowledge Communities focusing on specific practice models and building typologies. Click here for a comprehensive introduction to these knowledge sharing groups. AIA-WV strongly encourages its members to take advantage of this network of professionals assembled around specific spheres of expertise.

The YAF, or Young Architects Forum, is a special organization within AIA formed to provide professional development and network opportunities for architects licensed for less than a decade. Visit the YAF site to learn more about this group and be sure to get involved.
