Members Living and Working Outside Alberta
Members living and working outside of Alberta can designate a Primary Jurisdiction for purposes of Professional Development reporting. For Canadian members, the primary jurisdiction is defined as the member's principal place of practice and residence in Canada. For members practising / residing outside Canada, the primary jurisdiction would be the jurisdiction in Canada in which the member first obtained registration. Please click here for more information.
Program Audit Policy
Members must complete and report the required learning hours by the June 30th reporting deadline. Members who are non-compliant on July 1st will be assessed a Professional Development Arrears Fee and will be referred to the Registrar who, in turn, will serve notice of the date on which member registration is to be cancelled. This is in keeping with Section 27(1) of the Architects Act.
The members’ self-reported submissions to the AAA Professional Development Program will typically be accepted in good faith. However, a quality control process will take place following the close of each reporting period. Please click here for more information.
