Membership & Component Support Upates

Online Member Profile

Wanda Chambers | 202.626.7584

A new self-service web application has been released for members to update personal information online.  Members can now sign into: www.aia.org/myprofile to add or change contact information, provide much needed demographic information, update their education, professional licenses, career-track, and contact preferences.  This new web form will help keep member data up to date, and save staff time at the component and national level.  We encourage all components to socialize this new service to their members, and provide direct linking to the profile from the component webpage. Members will also be able to access the profile page directly after logging in at www.aia.org home page using new navigation in the upper right-hand corner.  An FAQ regarding the new page is available in in the M&CS Resource Guide.
