Join AIA Chattanooga

The AIA, with more than 91,000 members nationwide, is the professional organization of the architectural community. If you're an architect, you benefit directly from the AIA's efforts to advocate at all levels—national, state, local—on issues that affect the practice of architecture.

Being an AIA member keeps you connected with peers, provides you with important continuing education, and keeps you informed about matters that affect your practice and your profession.

  • “I have been an active member in the AIA locally since 1998. I’ve remained a member because I find value in the professional association and what it means to me. The AIA is more than continuing education, it is a strong, collective voice for professionals that share the same ethics and standard of care. The AIA is advocacy and proactive leadership for our profession where the individual voice would not be heard. And last of all, the AIA is a representation of our profession’s duty to engage the communities that we serve.”
    Eric Myers, AIA Elemi Architects
  • “Being an AIA member serving on local and national committees has allowed me to connect with colleagues locally, regionally and across the country. AIA represents the legislative interests of all architects and provides us with tools and educational programs to be successful in our chosen career paths.”
    Robin Vasa, AIA Tennessee Valley Authority
  • “The AIA is about joining a team and becoming bigger than ourselves. Today’s architect has many responsibilities as a steward of the public’s health, welfare, and safety. It is impossible to track and be involved in all facets of design and development, such as politics, green building technology, product development, architectural advocacy, professional growth, and continued communication among architects. The AIA is a vessel for being informed so we can collectively make smart decisions and advance the profession of architecture. AIA is this for me. ”
