We build a community of architects committed to the significant role of the profession in creating better communities.
We support the professional growth of our members by providing them access to a wide range of practical resources, a voice on local and national policy setting, and opportunities for continuous learning.
Registered architects in Australia or architects registered in the country where they reside.
Registration details for each jurisdiction in which you are eligible to practice are required to complete your application.
As part of our ongoing commitment to improving our membership experience and offerings to all the members we support, we’re simplifying our membership categories for 2023 and beyond, ensuring we continue to meet the evolving needs of the profession.
This is the first phase of our commitment to reviewing our member experience, with a review of the structure of our A+ membership continuing into next year.
Amongst many changes, we’ve reduced our membership categories from 11 to just seven, which more closely reflects the logical progression of an architect’s career journey.
We’re also introducing a range of flexible and affordable options, supporting our members through career and personal life events including recent graduation and registration, parental leave, post-graduate leave and retirement.
* Fees include GST, unless Members Overseas.
