Membership

AIA is where the architecture and design communities come together to share knowledge, gain expertise, get connected, and stay involved. An AIA membership connects you to this global community of over 90,000 professionals who share your passion for architecture, design, and the built environment. It also connects you to opportunities to mold the architecture profession, public policy, and practice.

Whether you’re an experienced architect or emerging professional, recent graduate, sole practitioner running your own practice or mentoring new architects or those seeking to become architects, architecture faculty, or those affiliated with architecture, AIA has tools and resources that support you at every stage.

Call AIA Connecticut at 203-865-2195 or email us and we will send you an application. 

Membership promotions occur at different times, so be sure to ask if there are any discounts for new members.
