Welcome to our growing gallery of AIA Southern Arizona Architects.
Advocacy – AIA Southern Arizona, alongside our lobbyist, supports the needs of the architecture profession by building relationships with organizations and legislators that affect local and state policies. AIA Arizona has an active Government Affairs Committee that continually monitors legislative activity at the federal and state level. These components work together to protect and promote the interests of all Arizona architects.
Networking – Being an AIA Southern Arizona member allows you to network with members from within your local chapter, state component, the Western Mountain Region and the United States. You will also be able to connect with aspiring architects and affiliated professionals.
Recognition – Awards given by AIA Arizona are seen as prestigious honors by architects, affiliated professionals and the general public. Only AIA members are eligible for the various awards.
Public Awareness - Educating the public on the value of good design is one of AIA Southern Arizona’s most important initiatives. With a dedicated public relations professional, AIA Southern Arizona is constantly building relationships with the media and community.
Education – AIA offers many continuing education opportunities through monthly chapter meetings, box lunch programs, our annual state conference regional conference and AIA National Convention.
