For more information on the benefits of membership for architects, emerging professionals studying to be licensed and allied members please see the information for each category.


Membership Levels

Your participation as one of our AIA members will give you a voice in our Chapter’s educational, community and advocacy efforts.

In addition to committee involvement, AIA membership offers you:

  • Members participate in AIA’s many continuing education and professional development activities at a reduced rate and keep current on mandated courses and licensing requirements.
  • AIA Members have opportunities to take leadership roles in the industry with access to industry leaders and key public officials, and form critical alliances with these individuals. Participation supports a member’s firm’s business and marketing plans and gives them specialized expertise.
  • AIA Fort Lauderdale joins other Florida and National AIA Chapters to have a strong voice locally, in Tallahassee and Washington, DC. through our political action committees.
  • Only AIA members can use the prestigious initials AIA after their names, indicating that they subscribe to the highest professional and ethical standards.
  • AIA Miami is the voice of the design, architecture and construction industry in South Florida.
  • AIA Miami will accept membership dues in one payment or four payments, or on a schedule that best suits your budget.
