Support: Become a Member

Membership

Join a community dedicated to advancing the culture of architecture and urbanism, explore design in the life of New York City and beyond, and engage the critical issues that shape our built environment, our society, and our world

The League is introducing a new, simplified membership structure to take full effect in 2021. We are consolidating the Non-resident, 35 and Under, and Over 35 categories into a single Individual member level, while maintaining our reduced rate for students, seniors, and those with precarious or intermittent income. We have also combined the Contributing and Supporting levels. The revised structure is now available for all new and returning members.

Until January 1, 2021, members can continue to access our old structure using the legacy membership form and lock in their previous membership rate for another 12 months. Scroll down to the menus below to see details about the updated membership categories and to access the legacy membership form through the month of December.

The League’s programs draw audiences from across disciplines, generations, and points of view. Members are architects, artists and designers, urban planners and policy-makers, students and educators, practitioners in related fields, and those in the wider public who seek to enrich their understanding of the built environment. Membership is open to all who are interested in architecture and urbanism.

Members receive a wide range of benefits, including free admission and advance reservations to League lectures, symposia, discussions, and other events; access to members-only programs such as First Friday office visits; and invitations to exhibition previews and receptions.
