AIA Arizona, alongside our lobbyist, supports the needs of the architecture profession by building relationships with organizations and legislators that affect local and state policies. AIA Arizona has an active Government Affairs Committee that continually monitors legislative activity at the federal and state level. These components work together to protect and promote the interests of all Arizona architects


Being an AIA Arizona member allows you to network with members from within your local chapter, state component, the Western Mountain Region and the United States. You will also be able to connect with aspiring architects and affiliated professionals.


Awards given by AIA Arizona are seen as prestigious honors by architects, affiliated professionals and the general public. Only AIA members are eligible for the various awards.

Additionally, one of the benefits that comes with membership in the Institute is the right to use a suffix to the member’s name that includes the AIA’s initials. The name The American Institute of Architects and the initials (AIA) are registered trademarks. Only those individuals who are members in good standing are entitled to use these AIA designations.

Public Awareness

Educating the public on the value of good design is one of AIA Arizona’s most important initiatives. With a dedicated public relations professional, AIA Arizona is constantly building relationships with the media and community.


AIA offers many continuing education opportunities through monthly chapter meetings, box lunch programs, our annual state conference, our annual regional conference, and AIA National Convention. You can also receive continuing education units by reading designated magazine articles, attending webinars and going to other events within the State of Arizona. All active AIA members must successfully complete 18 learning unit (LU) hours each year, with at least 8 of the 18 LU hours relating to health, safety, and/or welfare (HSW).
