AEC Daily wins 2009 AIA/CES Award for Excellence



    TORONTO, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - The American Institute of Architects (AIA)
informed AEC Daily that they had won the 2009 AIA/CES Award for Excellence for
Internet Platform Providers. The award is extremely competitive and difficult
to obtain. AEC Daily was chosen not just for having one outstanding course,
but instead, for having an overall program with an exceptional commitment to
high quality education.
    "AEC Daily is proud to be the first winner of the AIA/CES Award for
Excellence for Internet Platform Providers," said Jeff Rice, president of AEC
Daily. "We were pleased to learn that the AIA had created this brand new award
category to recognize the growing importance of online distance learning."
    The prize is awarded by the AIA jury to a continuing education provider
who has demonstrated a strong overall commitment to quality programming and
delivery. The judging process is very thorough. Rather than focusing on
individual achievements, it evaluates an organization in 6 major areas:

    
    1.  Leadership commitment and support,
    2.  Planning and analysis,
    3.  Design and implementation,
    4.  Resources and records,
    5.  Evaluation and improvement, and
    6.  Provider-specific, partnership, and alliances.
    

    "The AIA would like to congratulate AECDaily.com on winning the 2009 CES
Award for Excellence as the Internet Platform Provider of the Year. We have
seen great dedication, improvement and commitment over the years. We feel that
our members will find a consistent level of high quality courses," said Thom
Lowther, Senior Director of the AIA/CES.
    The American Institute of Architects is the voice of the architecture
profession with over 83,000 members. For over 150 years, members of the AIA
have worked with each other and their communities to create more valuable,
healthy, secure, and sustainable buildings and cityscapes. High quality and
lifelong education for architects is a core value of the AIA and they are
always working to improve the industry through training, outreach, advocacy
and education.
    The award will be officially presented at the AIA Provider Conference in
Santa Barbara, California on July 8 - 10, 2009.
