What is the Architect's Program

The Architect’s Program is a tailored collection of more than 50 unique sessions for architects. Offering AIA Learning Units, HSW credits and GBCI continuing education hours, the Architect’s Program in conjunction with NASCC: The Steel Conference is the newest education and networking event for architects designing with structural steel. Attendees can earn up to 6.5 AIA LUs by attending the 1-Day Program on April 11, and 16 AIA LUs by attending the full conference. Engage with your fellow architects in this concentrated program and learn about the latest exciting innovations in steel framing systems and how they can be applied to your upcoming projects.

LEARNING UNITS (LUs) AT THE STEEL CONFERENCE

EARN LUs

Participants earn one LU for each hour of participation at designated sessions at The Steel Conference. A variety of LU sessions are eligible for Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) credit. Please provide your AIA member number during the registration process to receive credit for courses you attend.

A numeric session-specific code will be given during each session so only those who participate will have access to the code. It is critical that you keep track of your session codes as this is the only way you will be able to obtain your LU and/or HSW credit. After registering your attended sessions, AISC will register your attended sessions with the AIA Continuing Education System (CES).

REGISTERING LUs

Register your attended sessions on the mobile app or at www.aisc.org/nasccpdh (link will be available during The Steel Conference). Following submission of the corresponding codes, you can download or email a PDF of your Certificate of Attendance. If you're having trouble registering your sessions, contact us at nascc@aisc.org

PROCEEDINGS AND RECORDINGS

The Steel Conference does not offer conventional proceedings. Instead, approximately 45 days after the conference, we post slide shows (complete with audio) of many of the presentations. Visit our education archives to view recordings from past conferences.
