Allied Membership

AIA Austin Allied Membership is available to companies, organizations, and individuals who share an interest in the built environment as a professional colleague or enthusiast. Allied Members include those involved in roles allied to the field of architecture, like engineers, planners, landscape architects, craftspeople and artists, journalists, and professionals involved in government, educational, and legal services. Our Allied Membership program provides opportunities to connect with AIA Austin’s community of architectural professionals. In turn, through their involvement in continuing education and committee activities, sponsorships, and membership dues, Allied Members provide essential support for AIA Austin and its annual activities.

Connect with and show your support of Austin architects by becoming an AIA Austin Allied Member today!
