Unassigned membership in AIA Virginia is intended for individuals who maintain active membership in another local AIA chapter and the national AIA but wish to keep abreast of and participate in AIA Virginia activities.

Unassigned membership entitles individuals to participate in AIA Virginia sponsored events and programs at the member discount rate and to receive regular society notifications. Since AIA members are eligible to vote in only one AIA Chapter, unassigned members are not eligible to vote in AIA Virginia elections, hold a position on the Board of Directors, or represent the Chapter as a delegate to any meeting of the Institute.

The 2024 dues for unassigned membership are $260.25 for an architect joining between April and June 2024. Payments to AIA Virginia are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes but may be deductible under other provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.
