AIA Utah Committees

Anyone can participate! Learn how!


We rely on our volunteers - Architect, Associate, Emeritus, Fellows and Allied Members - to help shape the role that good design plays in creating better spaces for live, work, and play. With over 650 members, AIA Utah promotes positive change through the power of design.

Allied Membership

Be easily identified as a trusted resource! All Allied members are encouraged to use the phrase "Proud Allied member of AIA Utah" in signature lines, on promotional materials, and on your websites. AIA Utah will help you promote your existing programs, extend Allied member pricing for sponsorships and event registrations, and more!
