Hire an AIA architect: The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is the national professional organization of architects. Members who use the AIA initials after their name are licensed architects and AIA members; however some licensed architects are not members of the AIA — so you need to always look for the AIA designation.
AIA architects benefit from the AIA’s focus on their professional needs and the public service obligations of the profession. Members of the American Institute of Architects have unique access to continuing professional training, timely access to information on new building materials and technologies and, perhaps most important, access to other AIA members who include the best practitioners in the nation.

In the publication You and Your Architect, the AIA provides valuable guidance on how to establish and benefit from those relationships.
