AIA California Council
The American Institute of Architects, California Council (AIACC) is the nation's largest state architectural organization, representing more than 11,000 members on issues of statewide importance to the public and profession. The Council, comprising 22 local components, has a strong reputation as a member-driven professional organization.
In 1944, at the request of California's existing AIA chapters, the "California Council, The American Institute of Architects" was chartered as a state organization by the AIA. In 1950, CCAIA was incorporated as a non-profit California corporation. In 1992, the name of the organization was changed to "The American Institute of Architects, California Council." It is also known simply as the Council or AIACC. Today, the AIACC is composed of 22 local chapters.
Vision and Purpose
The AIACC's purpose is to "give unified representation in all statewide matters affecting the architectural profession within the State of California." (From the Articles of Incorporation). Located in Sacramento close to the state Capitol, the AIACC's primary mission is to advocate on behalf of architects and the architectural profession to the Legislature and state regulatory boards and agencies.
