2015 State Realignment Plan

AIA National Core Member Service Plan

Why do we need core member services?

  • Survey’s and interviews revealed the AIA’s complexity was confusing for members to access what they need.
  • The AIA set 10 priorities based on the results of these interviews, three of which focus on the health and effectiveness of AIA components: component autonomy versus unity; component structure; and lack of tier coordination.
  • AIA needs to evolve to remain relevant and essential in order to best serve its members and the architecture profession and focus its resources and energy on the key things that matter most to members.

How can we best serve the members?

  • Provide a consistent experience for all members, while aligning financial resources and service capacity to ensure AIA membership is valuable and relevant.
  • Enable all members to receive the same core benefits including continuing education events and classes, meetings, fellowship and knowledge.  This broad member-centric approach will provide higher quality resources for members throughout the state.
