Benefits of Allied Membership
Allied Membership is a good way to stay connected to the architecture community in Southwest Florida. We have more than 180 members in our local chapter and our numbers continue to grow. The chapter hosts many events throughout the year, including: monthly breakfast meetings for the Naples and Ft. Myers sections, Continuing Education classes and presentations, a lecture series, and our Annual Design Conference and Design Awards.
Allied members may be individuals who otherwise are not eligible to join the AIA, or businesses who support the architectural profession, either through goods or services, or simply a shared interest in our built environment. Allied membership is separate at each level of the AIA: national, state, and local. Supporting this local chapter with your membership will provide the most direct connection to the community where you do business.
There are also additional benefits to being a member at the state and national levels. We would be happy to assist you with such a commitment if you are interested.
Some of the direct benefits of Allied Membership with AIA Florida Southwest are:
- Online exposure with your company listing and a direct website link on www.aiaflasw.org
- Invitations to events and activities sponsored by AIA Florida Southwest, including events in collaboration with our Industry Partners - Member pricing to attend events, which offer continuing education and networking with the design and construction community
- Receipt of the AIA Florida Southwest newsletter, Design View, published bi-annually, to keep you updated on events within the architecture community - Discounts on newsletter sponsorship opportunities and your booth registration at our Product Expo.
- Participation in chapter committees and the opportunity to suggest events and programs to our Board of Directors and Officers.
As AIA Florida Southwest is the resource for architecture in our community, our members often refer to Allied member’s companies for goods and services, and our website is accessible to the general public.
