Becoming a District Architecture Center Member

Love architecture? Become a DAC Member and enjoy a year of free and discounted events like tours, lectures, and seminars. Benefit from special discounts, exclusive publications, and be the first to know about new events, exhibitions, and programs with our weekly Newsflash e-newsletter. If you have kids, a DAC membership can help you save big one of the many children's programs on offer by the Washington Architectural Foundation.

If you love exploring your city, learning more about architecture and design, and engaging in important urban design topics, a DAC Membership is perfect for you. Best of all, membership essentially pays for itself after enjoying only a few events!

Memberships run on a calendar year, with annual renewals due on December 31. If you are a first-time member joining during the months of January through September, you are considered a member of the current year. If you are a first time member joining in October through December, you are considered a member for the next calendar year (renewing members are not affected). Your membership benefits will start immediately. Full payment is required when you submit your membership application.

Individuals who have an architecture license or architecture degree, and are eligible for AIA or Assoc. AIA membership are not eligible for DAC membership. 

DAC Members are only recognized at the Chapter level (DC).
