About the AIA Trust

The AIA Trust offers a portfolio of risk management solutions and resources designed to help AIA members grow and prosper.

Established in 1952, the AIA Trust works with independent consultants to evaluate, select, and monitor insurance and benefit programs for AIA members and components, and that meet the institute’s high standards of quality, value, financial stability, service, and coverage, adhering to strict criteria. A new criterion added in 2021, requires current and future insurance benefit program providers to maintain Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) investment policies; learn more.

For decades, we’ve helped AIA members:

  • Solve critical business needs.
  • Save time and money.
  • Succeed.

In short, we aim to be the trusted source of essential risk management solutions for architecture professionals.

Who we serve

We’re dedicated to helping AIA members make smart decisions about complex matters and serve as a risk management resource for the practice of architecture.


The AIA Trust is governed by Trustees comprised of six AIA members and one AIA component executive.  The Trustees are appointed by the AIA President.  View our 2023 Trustees.

Each year there is at least one opening on the board of trustees for a five-year term. Qualified and interested candidates can complete the current call for nominations questionnaire. The trustees aim to achieve a balanced representation on the board, reflecting the diversity of AIA membership including factors such as geography, demographics, and firm size.

The AIA Trust receives no dues dollars and is not a source of revenue for AIA. View the AIA Trust Annual Report.
