As you hold a recognised qualification within the built environment and are an employee or unemployed, then join us now as an Associate member.

Associate membership should be regarded as recognition of academic achievement within Architectural Technology and a holding grade of membership as you progress to Chartered Membership.

What happens once I am a member?

Once your application has been processed, you will receive an electronic welcoming pack with details of your local Region/Centre along with additional information. As a member, you can be involved with your Region/Centre or at national level with the Institute. 

What is the role of a Region/Centre?

Each Region/Centre has a Committee which organises Continual Professional Development (CPD) events and other networking opportunities. Members are encouraged to attend these events and play an active part within their Region/Centre. You can attend any CPD events organised by other Regions/Centres at your own cost. You can also attend relevant local events arranged by the CIOB, RIBA and RICS. However, you may need to pay to attend these events. Details of all events can be found on our calendar and in your weekly e-newsletter, AT Weekly.

How can I get involved with my Region/Centre?

There are opportunities to be involved with the Institute at national level by joining a Committee or Taskforce as well as standing for election in an honorary capacity, as part of the Institute’s Executive Board and Council. Further details can be obtained from Central Office.

I have cancelled my membership. Can I rejoin?

You will just need to complete the joining process again by filling out the application form and paying the re-instatement fee, which is detailed in the subscription fees document.
