Membership in the American Institute of Architects

Membership in the AIA provides a resource for professional and personal enrichment; a means for architects and design professionals to collectively create an enhanced level of professional worth. The Palm Beach Chapter provides member services for architects, associates, emeritus and professional affiliates.

In addition to the benefits of membership on the national level, AIA Palm Beach provides an excellent program of member opportunities for each member category. Architects and associates maintain membership on three tiers: national, state and local levels of AIA.
