A+ is the Institute’s Practice Membership, providing your practice with tools necessary to assist you in delivering the best possible architectural service to your clients.
A+ Membership means that every design professional in your practice is a member of the Institute, and every Member Level 1 and Graduate Tier A is required to complete a certain amount of CPD every year to ensure they are practicing at the highest level.
With all eligible professional staff as members, A+ practices have significantly greater potential to influence the profession and the Institute. A+ practices are better able to elect office-bearers and help determine the Institute’s strategic priorities.
A+ is about a commitment to the Institute, best practice and the future of the profession.
Lowering the cost of membership
By sharing Institute membership across all professional staff in your practice, the per-member cost of A+ membership can be much lower than the cost for ordinary members.
A+ membership fees can be up to half the normal rate for each individual member within the practice. What’s more, a single payment each quarter by the practice simplifies the paperwork and spreads the cost over the year to greatly assist practice cash flow.
