Who we are

The National Associates Committee (NAC) dedicated to representing and advocating for AIA’s associate members in AIA’s national, state and local chapters. Associate members automatically become part of this AIA KnowledgeNet community.

FAQ: Who can be an Associate AIA member? Membership at the Associate level is open to people with a professional degree in architecture, those working under an architect or enrolled in AXP, or faculty. Learn more.

FAQ: What is a young architect and what is an emerging professional? Young architects are architects licensed up to ten years of initial licensure, and the name does not have any relationship to age. Emerging professionals are professionals who have completed their academic studies up to the point of licensure or up to 10 years after completion of their academic studies. Although young architects are now defined as distinct from emerging professionals, many components refer to these groups similarly. For example, a local YAF group may include emerging professionals and a local Emerging Professionals Committee may include young architects.
