Creating Valuable Experiences for our Members and Colleagues
Volunteering on a committee is a great way to expand your membership value.
Joining as an individual provides you with an opportunity to connect with a community of colleagues you can turn to for design inspiration, career development and answers to the challenges you confront as an architect. Individuals become three-tiered members of the association with membership to national, state and local components.
Joining as an AIA Philadelphia architecture firm connects your firm with the general public through our "Find an Architect" resource on our website (the most clicked link) and allows you to promote your news to 6,000+ people through our newsletters. Our firms lead conversations addressing the most pressing issues facing the profession and our communities.
Allied Companies and Firms
Joining as an AIA Philadelphia allied firm provides access to a large and active network of architects and design professionals. Our allied firm members are a constant source of high-quality continuing education content for our architect members and contribute to the thought leadership in our committee work, programs, and policy efforts.
Advocating for Architecture
Consistent with our strategic plan and mission of Advancing Architecture and Design, Leading on Climate Action, and Prioritizing Equity and Justice, AIA Philadelphia engages in public debates on policy issues and positions our members as experts and thought leaders helping to solve some of the most pressing issues facing our City.
