Some good news for AIANY’s 5,200 members: on Wednesday, 08.19.15, the Board of Directors voted to not raise AIANY dues this year. The AIANY Chapter dues will remain the same for 2016. In 2014, the Board undertook an extensive review of the dues structure for 2015 and made strategic steps to rationalize the structure, eliminating supplemental dues for member architects, and reducing the confusion based on years and tiers of membership. This year, with a rising membership, now at 5,200, and improved economic conditions in the field, the Board anticipates being able to continue to provide value and meet member needs without increasing the direct costs to members.
