Our Associate Intern membership is intended for recent graduates of schools of architecture who have just joined the workforce. In order to support these emerging professionals, the Texas Society of Architects created this member type with a reduced state-level Associate dues rate of $75, while still offering all the privileges of Associate membership.

Please Note Chapter-level and national-level dues will still apply with no reduction.

In order to be an Associate Intern Member, you must have graduated from a school of architecture within the past seven years. In addition, this membership type is only applicable for a full total of five years, after which you will become an Associate Member.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is a three-tiered organization. Membership is required at the local, state, and national levels. Local component affiliation is assigned by zip code based on an individual’s business or home address. Membership dues are calculated on a calendar year, January through December. New member dues are prorated quarterly. You must contact your local AIA component or AIA Information Central, 800-242-3837, to determine your annual membership dues.

You can join AIA online or download an application from their website.
