Join AIA

Membership in the AIA offers a vast pool of resources to help you compete in today's market and keeps you informed of critical professional issues that may challenge your success. We invite you to become an AIA member today.

Please select your membership category from among the following descriptions:

Architect Member (AIA)

Individuals who are licensed to practice architecture in the United states are invited to be a part of the leading organization representing the interests of the profession, The American Institute of Architects (AIA). Learn more

Members who reside in Alaska are eligible to become a member of AIA Alaska as their local AIA Chapter.

One of the advantages of being a licensed architect member of the Institute is the use of the AIA credentials, identifying you as part of the community of architecture. AIA members adhere to AIA Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, and are required to strengthen their knowledge of the profession through continuing education requirements.

AIA Member Emeritus denotes an AIA member in good standing for 15 successive years who 1) has attained the age of 70, or 2) has attained the age of 60 and is fully retired from the profession or unable to continue working in the profession. Members' Emeritus receive the same benefits as AIA members but now have emeritus status without the customary membership fees. Eligible AIA members can visit the AIA national web site to obtain an emeritus member application form.

Associate Architect Member (Assoc. AIA)

Associate AIA membership is open to individuals who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Recent graduate with a degree in architecture, or

  • Currently enrolled in the Intern Development Program (IDP) and working towards licensure, or

  • Currently work under the supervision of an architect or hold a degree in architecture, or

  • Faculty member in a university program in architecture.

Take advantage of complimentary membership for recent graduates. Click here for details.

As the emerging leaders for the profession, associate members are encouraged to join AIA to expand your network and knowledge about the practice of architecture. As a special incentive to associates, AIA Alaska offers a sliding scale membership rate for recent graduates (new grads join at no cost) and a discount on local membership for first and second year associates.

Contact AIA Alaska to confirm exact rates depending upon your status/year and to obtain an application for membership.

International Associate Architect Member (Int'l Assoc. AIA)

Individuals who have an architecture license or equivalent from a non-U.S. Licensing authority are eligible to join as an Int'l Assoc. AIA. In addition to the many benefits of joining the AIA, international members residing locally can take advantage of the many networking and educational opportunities offered by AIA Alaska. Learn more.

Contact AIA Alaska for information on AIA member benefits, how to join or renew your AIA membership.

Are you no longer receiving benefits because your membership is lapsed?

(Former) AIA members who did not renew their membership by March 31are now lapsed. Lasped architect members no longer have the right to use the AIA (or Associate AIA designation for associate members). If you are a past member, we would love to have you back.

Do you need help in meeting Continuing Education reqirements? All benefits of membership cease when membership is lapsed including correspondance about all local AIA events. Reinstate your membership to take advantage of all benefits including free admission to Chapter AIA/CES lunch and learn programs, discounted rates to many allied professional programs, and subscription to our weekly eVent update to help you meet State Mandatory Continuing Education requirements for Alaska licensed architects.
