CNU Accreditation Sign-Up Deadline Tomorrow

Exam Registration Closes Thursday, August 6, 2009

Dear [firstname],

The CNU Accreditation program was launched to recognize the talent within the new urbanist movement for creating walkable, sustainable places. The accreditation program seeks to elevate the practice of the principles of New Urbanism and to develop a premier standard of professional excellence in the design of the built environment. Professionals who meet the requirements of accreditation will be recognized as CNU-Accredited.

One of the main requirements of accreditation is to take and pass the CNU / University of Miami Accreditation exam. This online exam can be taken during three access windows each year. The first one is this fall, Oct. 5 - Nov. 23, 2009. Registration for this exam closes tomorrow, Aug. 6, 2009. The next opportunity to register for the exam will begin Dec. 2009, with the exam access window in March and April of 2010.

CNU has partnered with the University of Miami School of Architecture to launch the first phase of this program using an online exam developed by leading new urbanists. The CNU Accreditation program will be frequently updated to reflect the depth of New Urbanist knowledge and practice. Participating at this stage will help the program evolve based on lessons learned and feedback from this first phase.

Visit to register now.

The University of Miami also offers a self-paced online course, titled The Principles and Practice of New Urbanism, which provides preparation for the exam but is not required. Registration for the course is separate from CNU Accreditation registration and is available online at
