Driving positive change through the power of design, AIA Chicago is the voice of the architectural profession in Chicago and a resource for its members in service to society.
The American Institute of Architects Chicago (AIA Chicago) is the largest chapter of licensed architects, architectural interns, and allied professionals within AIA Illinois. It is the second largest AIA chapter in the country. Of the 83,000 AIA members across the country, over 3000 are in the Chicago chapter.
AIA Chicago is a local connection to others in and affiliated with the profession. AIA Chicago is the grassroots effort that provides the best forum for sharing information, ideas, and resources. Chapter boundaries include the city of Chicago and the northern lake shore of Cook County as well as all of Lake and McHenry Counties. Through seminars, committees, a lecture series, and other Chapter programs, our members exchange professional experiences and knowledge. The Chapter magazine, Chicago Architect, an electronic newsletter, and quarterly calendar of events are key publications designed to inform you of the Chapter’s activities and encourage involvement in the AIA.

Membership in AIA demonstrates a commitment to personal and professional development while giving the AIA an even stronger voice for the architectural profession.
