Created history section, added image, added sources to the preexisting text (unfortunately all from AIA, we need some outside sources too), did clean-up of some MOS issues, removed some peacock and POV terms and statements (needs more work). Some of the preexisting text is awfully close to that on the AIA website, this needs some immediate attention though I personally didn't see any that was a complete copy/paste. Cheers.

This article does not mention explicitly that the AIA facilitates the registration of architects in the US (through the joint IDP program), nor does it make mention of the interplay between AIA, NCARB, and states, although it relies on knowledge of this information in later sections, for example when referring to "registered architects". Recommend adding this info to the intro.

It appears that the AIA has lost some of its focus since the new EVP/CEO - Christine McEntee - took over. More money than ever before is going out. She is selling the AIA name to anyone who will give her a million dollars. So much for the integrity of the institution. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:02, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
I believe that there should be a section for criticism. I remember hearing that only 25% of all graduates join the AIA. Even if they work in a firm, there might not be that many registered members. I think they have not been politically involved with going green, but the US green building council has picked up some of the slack. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 01:00, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
