Join the American Institute of Architects
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.
Individuals with an architectural license from a U.S. licensing authority are eligible for Architect membership.
Associate AIA membership is open to individuals who meet one of the following criteria:
• Professional degree in architecture (recent graduate information)
• Currently work under the supervision of an architect
• Currently enrolled in the Intern Development Program (IDP) and working toward licensure
• Faculty member in a university program in architecture
Individuals who have an architecture license or equivalent from a non-U.S. licensing authority are eligible for International Associate membership.
