National Architecture Associations
The leading professional membership association for licensed architects, emerging professionals, and allied partners since 1857.
AAF assembles design teams of diverse expertise; connects them with government officials, educators, business leaders, and others whose daily decisions help determine the design of our cities; and engages them all in a collaborative design process that responds to some of the most critical challenges facing our nation.
The society's mission is to lead, to educate, and to participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environments.
NOMA's mission is to champion diversity within the design professions by promoting the excellence, community engagement, and professional development of its members.
This society's mission is to advance the knowledge and understanding of the history of architecture, design, landscape, and urbanism among scholars, professionals in allied fields (including architecture, historic preservation and planning), and the interested general public.
Local Architecture Associations
Founded in 1871, the Baltimore Chapter of The American Institute of Architects is the third oldest in the country.
Mission is "to improve the practice of architecture in Maryland through legislative and governmental action." Our perspective is mostly at the State level, although we maintain close ties with both state and local legislators. 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.
The Foundation today focuses its attention and energies on helping to promote an understanding of and an appreciation for Baltimore's built environment -- it does this through walking tours, lectures, public programs, and an architecture-in-the-schools program.
