The Power of Association

ACIA: American Construction Inspectors AssociationThe American Construction Inspectors Association has been advancing the construction inspection profession since 1954. For more than six decades, we’ve set the standards for knowledge and ethical conduct in the construction inspection field. Since 1984, we’ve trained, tested and certified general engineering inspectors, building inspectors, public works inspectors and 17 different categories of specialty inspectors. Today, ACIA Registered Construction Inspectors, or RCIs, are recognized by public agencies nationwide, including the state of California and the federal government.

Construction inspectors aren’t the only building professionals encouraged to join the ACIA. Our membership also includes professionals from state agencies such as the California Division of the State Architect, Office of Emergency Services, Dept. of General Services and Cal Trans. Other ACIA members include certified code inspectors, architects, engineers, contractors and construction managers from the private sector. Some of our members have designed important public works projects; others have played a direct role in crafting new standards and legislation. All of our members are dedicated to improving the science and art of construction inspection.

The ACIA is a network of construction inspectors and like-minded building professionals that offers an opportunity for collegiality in what can sometimes be a lonely profession. Our members enjoy connecting with their colleagues in real time at monthly chapter meetings, where they exchange knowledge and experience and learn firsthand about the latest industry trends. ACIA members get discounts on educational seminars and materials and also have access to our members-only Job Network, an email notification system featuring exclusive employment opportunities in the construction inspection field. When you join the American Construction Inspectors Association, you’re putting our network to work for you. That’s the power of association.
