Did you reach the end of the year without getting away from your desk to learn something new?

Has your travel and education budget been cut but you still want to get some new ideas? Do you need AIA Learning Units to meet your requirements for continuing education before years’ end? From November 15 to December 15, 2016 you will have every opportunity to learn with the Traditional Building Conference Series and the Traditional Building Online Education Center.
