AIA International Program

The practice of architecture is global in its reach and industry members seek vital information that is pertinent to foreign markets, trade, procurement and practice issues, as well as the cross-cultural aspects of working abroad.

The AIA International Practice Committee explores and monitors global practice and policy issues to be addressed by the President and the Board of Directors, and ensures communication among the different international constituencies and stakeholders within the AIA. The committee strives to promote excellence in international architectural practice; to serve as a resource to members by disseminating information in international markets, practice and design; to develop expertise in international policy and trade issues in order to advise AIA on international practice; to facilitate and enhance the international practices of the membership; and to foster relationships with architects abroad.
