Architect Members

Individuals with an architectural license from the Texas Board of Architectural Examiners are eligible for Architect membership. Currently the Texas Society of Architects has over four thousand Architect Members throughout its 17 chapters. It’s one of our strongest groups, and a huge contributor to our efforts to maintain and encourage the practice of architecture.

Please see the Member Benefits to learn what you would personally gain from joining the Texas Society of Architects.


The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is a three-tiered organization. Membership is required at the local, state, and national levels.
