    I believe AIA stands for American Institute of Architects, not Architecture.

    What have you done for me lately? …30 years on the timeline from 1982 to 2012 with nothing of significance. Maybe this is evidence of some larger problems.

      It seems the AIA’s only real purpose is to threaten legal action against anyone who has the audacity to call themselves an architect without being pre-approved by the AIA. Definitely an outdated institution which will hopefully disappear soon!
