Member Opportunities

Wondering what kind of benefits come with being an AIBD member? These member opportunities are just a small portion of what you get out of being an AIBD member.

Professional Credibility

Use your AIBD affiliation to enhance your professional credibility. Professional Members certified by the National Council of Building Designer Certification (www.ncbdc.com) proudly display the initials AIBD after their name.

National Referral Service

Professional Members are referred to those seeking out a building designer using the AIBD Find a Design Professional search tool at www.AIBD.org. Consumers can search by zip code, state, or by the designer’s name. AIBD uses the web link – www.SearchHomeDesigners.com – in its marketing materials to help create an easy-to-remember way for consumers to find qualified residential and light commercial building designers.
