Stay Competitive. Protect Your Business. Get Connected.
Staying current in your industry is critical to your work. Membership in the AIA makes it easy by providing a wide range of continuing education opportunities.
While you focus on the business of architecture, AIA supports you by influencing legislation at the local, state and national level.
Meet colleagues who share common challenges, opportunities and interests and form relationships that will build your career.
Careers aren’t built on passion alone. Which is why membership with the AIA is so essential. When you join the AIA, it’s not just about putting the letters behind your name. It’s about placing the support of an entire organization behind your career.
There is a place for you with the AIA.
