Time & Location

Jan 23, 2024, 9:00 AM – Jan 24, 2024, 1:00 PM

Olympia, Washington State Capitol Building, 416 Sid Snyder Ave SW, Olympia, WA 98504, USA

About the event

This year’s focus is Retire the Rolling Clock! AIAWA’s bill to remove the portion of Washington’s licensing law that gives the exam sections you’ve ALREADY PASSED an expiration date. Effective May 1, 2023, NCARB eliminated the Rolling Clock policy and began implementing a new score validity policy. Read more here. Washington is the last state to make this change and if we can’t get it passed this year, we have to wait another year.

Capital Connections will feature a kick-off briefing, an opportunity to hear from key legislators on our issues, and meetings with your state legislators. Please consider joining your fellow architects from across the state in this important outreach effort. AIAWA will provide all the talking points and background materials you will need to make your meetings a huge success. And we always make sure that no one has to attend alone.

All transportation costs are reimbursed. Members flying into SeaTac will have access to a shuttle to and from Olympia. Shuttle leave times will be provided.
