The American Institute of Architects is striving to make the world a better place through promoting the art of architecture. AIA offers free services to the community. Though AIA is located in Washington, D.C., everyone in America has the right to partake in these free services.
One awesome free service is training on how to become an architect. This training is done live, but there is always an Internet live-stream available. This training will be hosted by a leading professional in the field of architecture. Another great free service is the donation of rebuilding the community. The government or people from the community have the opportunity to commission the American Institute of Architects to rebuild certain structures in the community. Not only does this bring more value and beauty to the area, but this free rebuilding service also saves the government a lot of money.
The American Institute of Architects has over 100,000 active members in their organization. For a small fee, members receive a ton of benefits. For example, when architects go on a job, they can proudly say they belong to AIA. In fact, most governments, and even, people will not hire an architect who is not affiliated with AIA. Another great benefit is that AIA members receive daily leads regarding jobs in their area. The American Institute of Architects is known for helping architects in America achieve over one-million dollars in work.
Though the American Institute of Architects operates out of the United States, it has recently become a national organization. In Washington, D.C., there are approximately 400 AIA employees. Outside of the United States, there are over 3,000 employees. These employees have a number of different jobs, which range from bookkeeping to pushing for the building of an AIA facility in a specific country.
The American Institute of Architects is run by Robert Ivy. Robert Ivy graduated at the top of his class with a Master of Architecture degree. Before developing AIA, Robert Ivy was the CEO of several world renown construction companies.
On a daily basis, Robert Ivy is out in the public defending the art of architecture. In fact, Ivy recently made a medical discovery. With the help of several mental health doctors, Robert Ivy proved that having a healthy facility structure in a city helps the people of that area have a healthier mind. Ivy is planning on expanding AIA over the next several months.
