Member Participation Rewards

In 2018 AIA Potomac Valley is launching a new intiative to show its appreciation to members who take an active part in the life of the chapter. AIAPV Member Participation Rewards (MPR) recognize the value of the participation of architects and associates in all types of chapter activities from taking on leadership roles to simply attending chapter CEU events. Increased participation in chapter activities benefits all members by creating the energy and resources to offer more and better programming to keep chapter members on the forefront of design practice and innovation in our area. 

Architects and associates who earn 10 points in a calendar year can choose one of the following rewards to best suit their needs and interests, to use in the subsequent calendar year:

  1. vouchers for free admission to three chapter events (exclusive of Celebrate Design and the Golf Outing) up to $40 each; or
  2. one free ticket to Celebrate Design, the annual design awards celebration; or
  3. $50 discount on one design awards competition entry fee; or
  4. one free ad placement in the Potomac Valley Architect newsletter worth $75

Here's how you can earn points in 2018:

Events that offer points for Member Participation Rewards will display the program logo and may also indicate "CE" units. This is the way our online registration system will categorize Member Participation Rewards - it does not refer to AIA CES continuing education credits. You must register for events using your member log-in to be sure your participation is properly tracked.

Rewards earned between January 1 and December 31, 2018 will be available for use beginning January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019, except that rewards cannot be used until membership dues for 2019 have been paid in full. In the event of lapsed membership, rewards eligible for use in that calendar year will be forfeited. We'll let you know your point total periodically during the year, so you can boost your participation and get the rewards you deserve!
