The American Institute of Architects (AIA) was created in 1857 by 13 architects in New York City with the goal of promoting architects, architecture and industry standards. Now, AIA has over 88 000 members worldwide and stands by their original mission.
Licensed architects in the United States of America are responsible for earning continuing education credits each year to retain their AIA membership and/or their state license(s).
The Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) is an organization that aims to strengthen and advance the interior design profession through continuous skill, knowledge, competency and personal attitude improvement. A professional organization or a legal registration (by jurisdiction) may require a certain number of continuing education units. Members of IDCEC can fulfill those requirements by completing approved courses and activities.
The Alberta Association of Architects (AAA) is a self-governing association in accordance with the Architects Act that ensures all architects and licensed interior designers have the necessary education, experience and certification in order to perform their occupation in the province.
Also a product of the Architects Act, the Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC) is a self-governing association that sets rules and regulations for the profession for the benefit of the public. For 100 years, the AIBC has also been providing programs and support to their members.
