CPD & Business Meetings

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) obligations exist to help ensure that qualified professionals maintain their competence to practice. It is also a way of ensuring that architects keep up-to-date within a rapidly changing profession. All chartered members of the RIAS and RIBA are obliged to undertake CPD with minimum annual requirements.

Members
All ECAN members are encouraged to come to business meetings and CPD events. These events are free for members, and count towards their CPD requirements.

Visitors
You are most welcome to attend any of our CPD events, but you cannot attend any Business Meetings.  There is a CPD attendance fee of £5.00 payable on the day. Please get in touch by email – info@ecan-architects.com.
