AIA Columbus has been accredited by the American Institute of Architects. Achieving accreditation demonstrates the component’s commitment to excellence in providing quality service for members and the community. AIA Columbus has met the standards of AIA Core Member Services in advocacy, communications, education, finance, operations, governance, and membership.
The AIA Core Member Services (CMS) program lays the groundwork for component excellence by ensuring that all members receive a consistent level of service and that each component thrives as a nonprofit corporate entity. Components are examined on service delivery via the component accreditation process. Only those components successfully completing the process earn the distinction of being identified as a “Nationally Accredited Component.”
