allied MEMBER NEWS

New Nomenclature 

More in keeping with our bylaws, AIAVT is now referring to “Affiliate Members” as “Allied Members.” The Allied class of membership refers to sole proprietors or representatives from multiple-employee businesses not otherwise eligible for membership in the Institute or the chapter. Affiliates will refer to students that are undergraduates or post-graduates of architecture schools or secondary schools within the territory of our chapter.
