To become a member of the ACA, you need to be a registered architect practising in your own right. Single practitioners, partnerships and other forms of practice may join the ACA. Membership is practice based and subscriptions are related to practice size, calculated on the basis of four simple categories. If your practice subscribes to the ACA, all principals of the practice may be nominated voting members and all personnel within the practice have access to ACA events, publications and services at discount rates. If you do not practice in your own right, but you are a registered architect and work for a practice that is not an ACA member practice, you can still join the ACA as an associate member. You will have access to events and services but will not have the right to vote. We are currently offering free membership of the ACA.

Student Membership

In 2002 the ACA developed Student Membership through the Forum. In particular the ACA are keen to promote awareness of the Association and its work to students of architecture and to support students especially in the development of good practice. Student members of the ACA Forum do not have any voting rights at ACA General Meetings but are entitled to many of the benefits offered to Members of the ACA. A representative for students sits on Council. Student Membership is free of charge.
