We are very excited to announce our new membership structure!

Women in Architecture Vancouver greatly benefits from the support of its members. We put on events throughout the year and run programs that benefit our members and public at large. Our mission is to champion women in architecture and related professions by celebrating their achievements and providing opportunities for career development, networking, advocacy and inspiration for women at all career levels. Our members can participate in our governance and direction, support our activities and programs, and enjoy a few perks.

Annually we elect new members to our steering committee and decide on any major organizational decisions, as our member you would be eligible to vote on these matters.

Your membership means that you value what we do and that you want to be part of our organisation. Your support is invaluable to us to ensure that we can do even more to deliver on our mission and our goals.

As a member you would have greater access to our organisation, events, and programs including the following:

  • Members-only email newsletters
  • Pre-registration for unlimited events
  • Decision making on any bylaws or elections

We have a number of means by which you can become a member:

Volunteer membership – your membership is defined by your active and ongoing volunteer contribution during our calendar year. We have specific postings we are looking to fill, apply here. If none of these seem like a good fit, you can sign up for general volunteering here.

Honorary membership – this membership is defined by one’s previous contributions to WIA or to our profession. Honorary members are selected by the steering committee.

Individual membership – the individual membership is annual and would be renewed from year to year to ensure that our membership remains active and relevant. It is pay-what-you-can with suggested amount of $20- $50.

We hope that you consider joining WIA Vancouver as a member and we are looking forward to welcoming you into our organisation!
