The American Institute of Architects

"As an emerging professional trying to get licensed, that network of colleagues, that feeling of community, is really important—knowing there are resources and people to help me when I have questions, to help steer me in the right way."

HALEY GIPE, Assoc. AIA–Member since 2008

"As an associate member, you have a lot to learn before you get licensed. The AIA is one of the best places to do that because they provide so many workshops and networking events to help you better yourself and get yourself closer to being an actual architect."

TEAGAN ANDRES, Assoc. AIA–Member since 2007
