The American Institute of Constructors (AIC) recently celebrated 50 years of accelerating constructor excellence. We are unwavering in our support of the individual constructor to ensure the longevity of the construction industry.
To continue delivering the best possible membership experience and resources to AIC members, we determined that it was time to slightly increase the annual price of AIC membership.
Raising the price was a difficult decision, as we want to ensure that every member is able to continue participating in our organization. However, this is our first price increase since 2014, and we have continued to invest in our membership program to ensure that you receive the most benefits from your involvement.
The Price Change for Current AIC Membership
Please carefully review the following price changes to your membership group.
- Professional Member: new price of $275 (currently $250).
- Young Professional Member: new price of $140 (currently $125).
- Educator Member: new price of $165 (currently $150).
- Fellow Member: new price of $330 (currently $300).
- Lifetime Member: new price of $1,100 (currently $1,000).
Notably, we did not increase the price for Student Members. The price remains unchanged at $25 per year. This decision was made to aid college students who are trying to pay their college expenses and cover other expenses while pursuing their construction or construction-related degrees.
If you are in a group subject to a rate change, the new price will kick in when you renew your membership. All memberships expire at the end of the year on December 31st. If you have not already received a notification, you should sometime in November. Please contact us immediately if you do not receive notification this month.
We also encourage all members to utilize the AIC membership portal to manage your account. The self-service features will enable you to perform the following actions:
- Receive your invoice and use the link to pay your annual membership dues.
- Ensure that your account is set to the correct membership group.
- Update your contact information, including your email address, so that you continue to receive correspondence about dues.
You can also our primary email address, [email protected], to your contact list in the email client you use. This action will ensure that emails from AIC land in your inbox and are not lost in your spam folder.
