Firm Assessment

The Firm Assessment was created more than 51 years ago in recognition of, and to provide continuing support for, the services provided by AIA Minnesota that are of significant benefit to firms.

Payment of the Firm Assessment is required by the AIA Minnesota bylaws for any firm with an AIA Minnesota member as a principal. If payment plan options are desired, or you would like to request a hard copy sent to you by mail, contact Amber Allardyce by email at

Thank you for your continued support of AIA Minnesota. We look forward to another year of advocating on your behalf, promoting the value of architecture, and supporting your firm’s success throughout 2024. View the full letter from Mary-Margaret Zindren, Executive Vice President.

Firm Directory

AIA Minnesota Firm Directory is an annual directory of architecture firms that will appear in ENTER‘s annual print publication, on the AIA Minnesota website, and is one of the first benefits you receive by paying your Firm Assessments. Distributed to potential clients and targeted influencers and accessed online throughout the year, having your firm listed in this directory is a smart business decision!

The directory is an alphabetical listing of AIA Minnesota firms. Each online listing contains firm name and location, contact information, number and type of personnel, building and service type specialties (shown by percentages of the firm’s work), and sample projects. The ENTER print publication listing will be condensed information highlighting the firm name, contact information, building and service type specialties (up to five highest percentages), a few representative projects, and will note the full listing found online. The basic alphabetical listing has no fee and is a benefit of paying your 2024 Firm Assessments. Add visibility to your firm listing by including your firm’s logo for a fee of $55.

An enhanced option for your firm, in addition to the standard listing in the alphabetical section, is the Building Type Index. This section of the directory allows you to highlight your firm under particular building types for a fee of $75 per category. For firms that choose this option, in ENTER print publication, your firm name and location will be listed (in alphabetical order with others) under the building types you specify. Users of the print directory can then refer to your firm listing in the directory for more information about your firm. In the online directory, users will use the search tool to view firms under a particular building type index. The index is frequently the first place people turn to in order to find an architect for a certain type project; consider listing your firm under one or more of these categories. You can be listed under the building type your firm does best, or choose a type where your firm is hoping to grow business.

Please be reminded that you must pay your 2024 Firm Assessments in order to be listed in the AIA Minnesota Firm Directory.
