AIA Massachusetts is a state component of the American Institute of Architects. Incorporated in 1941, AIA Massachusetts is managed by a Board of Directors elected from each of the three state chapters – BSA, Central MA and Western MA. With over 3,400 members, AIA MA represents architects, as well as interns, students and allied professionals. Its mission is to serve its members, advance their value, and improve the quality of the built environment and the practice of architecture in Massachusetts through legislative and governmental action. We promote architects and architecture through political activism, legislative activities and grassroots efforts and we guard the interests of architects with regard to regulations and law.
