An Honors Academy of the AIA Virginia
Designed to develop future leaders in architecture firms, in communities, and in the profession, the ELA program consists of seven intensive day-long seminars. Each session will focus on one or more essential strategies or skills such as financial management, presentation and communication skills, negotiating techniques, understanding legal and ethical issues, and public service.
A class project is incorporated into the program, which lasts the entire year, is real-world and real-client based, and serves to help the participants put the knowledge and skills they are learning into practice.
