ACIA Membership

ACIA membership is available to all professionals in the construction industry, including building officials, construction inspectors, certified code inspectors, architects, engineers, contractors and construction managers. Some of our members come from state agencies such as the California Division of the State Architect, Office of Emergency Services, Dept. of General Services and Cal Trans. Some have designed important public works projects and led distinguished careers; others are students who will become the next generation’s construction inspectors. All of our members are dedicated to improving the science and art of construction inspection.

There are several ACIA membership options. Those whose primary function is to inspect the work described in construction documents are encouraged to join as general members. Our professional membership is tailored to architects, engineers and similar professionals. We also offer associate, affiliate and student memberships. Annual membership dues include your membership in the local ACIA chapter and more. Select the membership that’s right for you by clicking here and join the ACIA today!

Registered Construction Inspectors, or RCIs, form the core of our membership, with RCI members in California and 23 states across the country. We set our standards high, and those who pass our examination process are automatically granted a one year RCI certification and a one year membership in the ACIA. If you want to become an RCI, please click here.
