The AIA International Region: Background and Benefits


    We connect US-based AIA firms with AIA members throughout the world. We also connect major clients with US architects. We connect US officials and AIA members, to improve our position in foreign markets.


    We offer access to first-rate continuing education programs, Architectural Registration Exam study materials, and a quarterly newsletter with information on events, opportunities and programs.


    Our work addresses issues of the most pressing concern: urban transit systems, disaster mitigation planning, heritage conservation, sustainability and more. We take up the issues that matter to the places we're working.


    Our members now have a full and substantial voice in the affairs of the AIA. We are now in a position to shape AIA programs and activities to meet the needs and interests of practitioners who are active outside of the United States.


    We interact with the most influential members of the global building and design industry. Worldwide, our counterparts want to learn from US expertise and they are looking for ways to collaborate.
