Retargeting uses cookies to track visitors of one website and then reach those same visitors with ads on other websites, such as looking up recipes on the Food Network or reading the news in The Wall Street Journal. This gives your company the ability to reach AIA California’s members, and thousands of qualified leads whenever they are online and reach AIA California’s site traffic, wherever they go after visiting the website. Plans ranging from 50,000 – 150,000 impressions are available.

Architectural Education
Organizations, in order to remain vibrant and relevant, routinely adjust policies, revise standards, examine outcomes, and make adjustments to long standing methods of operation. It’s clear, based on even a cursory glance back over the past decade, and especially the past five years, that the three collateral organizations: NCARB, NAAB, and the AIA, have all made significant change, and your company can help support focusing on the well-being of the individual as they transition from student, to graduate to licensed professional.

Allied Membership
Allied membership is open to engineers, planners, landscape architects, sculptors, muralists, artists, and those in government, education, journalism, and manufacturing industry, and other fields allied to architecture. In order to strengthen relationships and take advantage of marketing opportunities – Be sure to sign up for your AIA CA allied membership and position yourself and your company for the future.
