(ETS) has been working closely with the AIA in recent months, including a cooperative effort to urge Congress to expand the current $1.80/ft2 deduction to $3.00/ft2 (S. 1637/H.R. 4226) and extend it through 2015. Lobbying efforts on behalf of Julio Gonzalez and Andrew Goldberg, Senior Director of Federal Relations at the AIA, have been well received and the outlook is positive for change.

ETS is honored to be collaborating with the AIA to enhance benefits for architects under the Energy Policy Act of 2005. In addition to lobbying efforts, ETS has been helping architects and designers understand the current benefits under EPAct by hosting workshops to various AIA chapters all over the country. ETS is approved to provide continuing education to architects through the AIA (CES Provider #E275) and to LEED APs through the USGBC (LEED AP CE Provider #319613). We may be in your area soon! We are currently scheduled to present to the following AIA Chapters, and more locations/chapters are added to our calendars every day.
