Did you know that architecture and design students can join AIA Los Angeles free of charge? Take advantage of all the great programs and events at AIA LA and get to know an amazing group of architects, designers and allied professionals. If you're already a member of your campus AIAS Chapter, you can join and benefit from both organizations!
The Student Member signup process takes just a couple of minutes at this link.
New graduates with a Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate from NAAB accredited programs who aren't yet licensed can also join through AIA LA as Associate members, and your membership is free for up to 18 months after graduation!*
If your program is not NAAB accredited, you may still qualify for free membership. Please visit AIA.org to double check.
It's never too early to get involved with AIA and your LA Chapter. Being a member can keep you connected and kickstart your career no matter what stage you're at, from emerging professional to seasoned practitioner! For more details, please visit AIA LA's New Graduate Associate Membership page.
*Membership is free through the end of the year after your graduation year. This may be less than 18 months total, depending on when you join.
