Individual Membership

Join a like-minded community

Membership of the IAI is open to individuals – not companies – who are qualified GAI Diploma holders, students actively on the GAI education programme, or experienced practitioners of the architectural ironmongery trade.  IAI is the acronym for Institute of Architectural Ironmongers and this is the home of our individual members.

This makes belonging to the Institute a real benefit to each individual member personally, and one which can be taken from job to job.
