Chapter meetings are typically held the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Most meetings are set-up so that our members can earn AIA & REFP credits by attending. The opportunity to earn these credits will be limited to the Association for Learning Environments members, so if you have been attending our meetings as a guest, now might be a good time to join our organization so that you don't miss out on earning the credits. For most meetings, Association for Learning Environments members can earn 1.0 AIA Learning Units and/or a 0.5 REFP credit by attending.
