International membership in the AIA

2007 AIACE President, Karl Hartnack, AIA, shares this letter from the Institute's International Director, Michael Lischer, AIA, seeking input regarding membership in the Institute for AIA members living overseas:

As part of my responsibility as International Director, I sit on several board committees. One of these is the Membership Committee. This committee is currently engaged in strategic discussions about the AIA’s membership categories and dues structure. Among the things we are looking at is the structure of the “international membership”. This includes issues such as the dues structure for international associates verses associates, the name of the international associate category of membership, how the existing membership structure accommodates international members with and without US licenses, etc.

The Membership Committee’s summer meeting takes place on the weekend of July 7th, where these matters will be discussed. I am very interested in any thoughts, comments, complaints, recommendations, etc that you and your chapter members may have. All input, critical or otherwise, is greatly appreciated!

Feel free to share this letter with your members and I welcome everyone to contact me by email or phone with their comments by Wednesday, the 4th of July. Attached, is the appropriate section from the Institute’s byelaws for reference.

Thanks very much for your input!

Best regards,

Michael Lischer AIA RIBA

International Director, American Institute of Architects
