Who, What & Why?
The Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is a professional organization incorporated on August 10, 1955 that serves the local architect, promotes architecture and the built environment within the Chapter’s boundaries.
We provide resources to the community for professional development and education, and serve as a vital link to local professionals, as well as other Chapter components of the AIA.
Organizationally, the Chapter is a local membership organization incorporated as a 501(c)6 Non-Profit Corporation and guided by the laws of the State of California.
The AIA is the VOICE of the architectural profession and the RESOURCE for its members in service to society.
