A+ is the Institute’s Practice Membership, providing your practice with tools necessary to assist you in delivering the best possible architectural service to your clients.
A+ Membership means that every design professional in your practice is a member of the Institute, and every Member and Associate category member is required to complete a certain amount of CPD every year to ensure they are practicing at the highest level.
With all eligible professional staff as members, A+ practices have significantly greater potential to influence the profession and the Institute. A+ practices are better able to elect office-bearers and help determine the Institute’s strategic priorities.
A+ is about a commitment to the Institute, best practice and the future of the profession.
A+ members receive access to the full suite of member benefits including exclusive access to the complete catalogue of Australian Standards.

Lowering the cost of membership
By sharing Institute membership across all professional staff in your practice, the per-member cost of A+ membership can be much lower than the cost for ordinary members.
A+ membership fees can be up to half the normal rate for each individual member within the practice depending on the number of enrolled members. What’s more, a single payment each quarter by the practice simplifies the paperwork and spreads the cost over the year to greatly assist practice cash flow.
