First Tuesday Lunch & Learns - Live Webinars with Grimm + Parker


Live Webinar with Grimm + Parker 

AIAPV has partnered with Grimm + Parker Architects to offer live webinars of the firm's Lunch & Learn CEU events on the first Tuesday of each month. Initially, the number of webinar seats will be limited to 10 per event, but could be expanded if there is sufficient demand. AIA credits will be electronically reported to AIA CES by the presenting vendors for all webinar participants. This is a member benefit open to AIAPV chapter members only and is a webinar-only offering. Registration through AIAPV is $5. Registrants will receive the WebEx log-in credentials the day before the webinar. 

Please be aware that Grimm + Parker is not set up for professional presentations; AIAPV appreciates Grimm + Parker's support in enabling the chapter to provide this valuable benefit for the convenience of members unable to get to our educational events in person.
