The Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA/AIA) is the eastern Massachusetts chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We are New England's largest building industry association.
The BSA/AIA helps architects and architecture thrive. We build a strong community by offering:
- Professional education and networking programs including conferences, workshops, and more than 40 active knowledge communities
- Advocacy for architects and architecture at the local, state, and national level
- Independent journalism, views, and commentary
- Opportunities to share our design expertise with neighbors, allies, and partner
Established in 1867, the BSA/AIA is the second largest chapter of the AIA with more than 4,500 members. We produce a diverse array of programs and editorial content focused on keeping the profession strong, creating thought leadership, and in providing a forum for conversation, discovery, and debate about design.
