About the AIA Trust

Established in 1952 by The American Institute of Architects as separate entity, the AIA Trust is a governed by a group of six AIA members and one AIA component executive who serve as Trustees, appointed by the AIA President.

The purpose of The AIA Trust is to develop and offer insurance and benefit programs of the greatest possible value and to serve as a risk management resource for members and components of the American Institute of Architects. The Trustees, working with independent consultants, evaluate, select, and monitor programs that meet the Institute's high standards of quality, value, financial stability, service, and coverage. The Trust serves as a member-advocate in getting information and claims handled properly and promptly.

The Trust is dedicated to assisting AIA members in making decisions about complex matters and serves as a risk management resource for the practice of Architecture in cooperation with the Institute. It receives no dues dollars and is not a source of revenue for the AIA. Click here for the latest annual report about The AIA Trust.
