As everyone knows, the NCARB IDP  program has focused on experiences in number of very defined practice areas.  With the change planned to take place June 29th of next year, there is time for those currently working toward licensure to plan your transition to the new format.  By taking a little time now, you can minimize the hours or sections affected by this participant focused realignment.  To find out more on the changes coming this June, read "What You Need to Know about the Overhauled IDP" at NCARB.org

The ARE Transition Calculator is in the process of going live.  With more than 38,000 individuals actively involved in the IDP program, this calculator will assist record holders in planning their next steps.  While there are changes in the experience areas, record holders should be aware that the hours earned will have a one to one relationship in the new format.  Record holders with exemptions who will not complete their hours prior to June 29th are urged to review their record with Customer Service.

The AIA Eastern Ohio Swing for Scholars golf outing was held at The Avalon at Squaw Creek Country Club on July 20th.  The annual event is geared toward the chapters efforts to elevate the profession by providing scholarships to students from the area who are enrolled in one of Ohio's four accredited architectural programs.  With 96 pre-registered golfers, the event provided members and others from the community the opportunity to help support students from the area.  Outing Chair Jay Crafton, AIA and the committee put on a great program and we congratulate them on their success.

The  AIA Ohio Valley Region Convention in Columbus, Ohio was held on October 11th through the 13th.   The convention is the Ohio Valley's premier event for continuing education, networking and leadership programming, and brings together members from across AIA Ohio, AIA Indiana and AIA Kentucky to a single event focused on providing quality programming in a great environment.

The convention included keynote presentations by Marshall Brown, Bryan MacKay-Lyons, FRAIC, Hon. FAIA, and Monica Ponce De Leon, AIA.  The committee  developed great programming and networking opportunities and we believe it was a great success.  The event drew more than 500 attendees from the three states and beyond and we have added below a sampling of photos taken during the many convention events.

 

 

The Kent State University CAED Golf Outing was held on May 18, 2015 at the Westfield Country Club in Westfield Center, Ohio and once again was an outstanding success.  The outing, Kent States largest, generates funds each year to help support the scholarship program at the CAED.  While the final numbers are still being reviewed, it is anticipated that this years effort exceeded $30,000 in income for the program.  Thank you to everyone who participated and we hope to see you on the course again next year.
