AIA Asheville is one of 300 local and state components of The American Institute of Architects, which unites the community of design professionals who live and work in the Western North Carolina and Asheville region.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is the professional society of architects, established more than 150 years ago as a national organization. AIA works to promote the value of the architectural profession and to advance the living standards of people through an improved built environment. Representing approximately 70,000 members nationally, 2,000 statewide, and more than 200 members locally, this three-tiered organization is the largest voice of the architectural community.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the AIA Asheville Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone all in-person meetings for the remainder of March. Consideration for the health, safety and wellness of AIA Asheville members and their families, partners, sponsors and the public is our top priority.   The March 18 Box Lunch will be rescheduled with our sponsor for a later date. The March 25 Section Meeting will be cancelled. The topic, "The State of the City", will be moved to a meeting later this summer.     As we learn more about this outbreak, we will keep you posted on events coming up in the next couple of months.   Thank you for your patience as we continue to determine the best ways to move forward during this challenging time.
