The AIA is the voice of the architecture profession and the resource for its members in service to society.

AIA Mississippi is a Chapter of The American Institute of Architects (AIA) representing and serving the state of Mississippi with over 350 individual member architects, associates, and allied design professionals who are working in fields in conjunction with architecture. Organizationally, we are a local membership organization incorporated as a 501(c) 6 non profit corporation and guided by the laws of the State of Mississippi.
