As AIA/SC sets to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2013, there has been a tremendous amount of change. In his book, “Architectural Practice: The South Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects,” John M. Bryan, HAIA states:
…the growth of the state over the last half-century has been paralleled by the growth of the architectural profession. Membership in the AIA/SC has grown from six charter members in June 1913, to 790 (out of 973 licensed architects residing in South Carolina and 2251 out-of-state registrants) in June 2001…
Today, AIA/SC boasts over 900 members statewide. South Carolina has six sections located conveniently across our state for our members to get involved in at the local level.Our sections include: AIA Charleston, AIA Greater Columbia, AIA Grand Strand, AIA Greenville, AIA Hilton Head and AIA Spartanburg. Nationally, AIA is compromised of over 80,000 licensed architects, emerging professionals and allied partners who are committed to excellence in design and livability in our nation’s buildings and communities.
