If you are not currently an AIA member there are many great reasons to join, and particularly to be part of the AIA New York Chapter. With a growing number of programs and exhibitions at the Center for Architecture and partnerships with cultural institutions throughout the city, members have access to a rich discussion of the built environment, and the opportunity to build a professional network from almost 5,000 AIANY members and firm representatives.
The expertise our members develop here and on the job is shared with thought leaders and those who implement public policy as an extension of our mission of design excellence in all realms. For example, as New York City enters transition under new mayoral leadership, AIANY issued A Platform for the Future of the City, which you can download from the Chapter website.
For those who are new to the Association, there are some special incentives for joining now!
