MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES & FEES

Regular Member

Criteria: Any firm registered by the AAA to practice architecture and having an office in Alberta under the direction of an architect resident to that office may become a member upon payment of the prescribed fees.

Affiliate Member

The Consulting Architects of Alberta seek to build a positive business climate for any and all consulting architect firms doing business in Alberta. To further this positive business climate, The Consulting Architects of Alberta have established a new class of Affiliate Membership for “out-of-province” firms.

Criteria
A consulting architecture firm that is registered with the Alberta Association of Architects to practice in Alberta.
This category is intended to cover firms that do not have an office established in the province with a licensed architect resident in that office (such firms qualify for regular membership).

Annual Dues
For firms joining prior to December 31, of each calendar year - $3,000 (assumes no voting rights available)*
For firms joining AFTER December 31, of each calendar year - $4,500 (assumes voting rights)*
Annual dues may be pro-rated to our fiscal year end (July 31) with annual renewal invoices sent in August of each year.
*Currently our bylaws do not permit Affiliate Members to have full voting rights (nor participation on our board of directors). We propose to amend our bylaws and put this to a membership vote at our Annual General Meeting in September of 2012.

NOTE: Now that we have come to the end of our first fiscal year, Charter Memberships are no longer available.
