AIBD California Society
The California Society of AIBD is dedicated to the integrity of the practice of building design
and the professionalism of our members.
We strive to achieve the following:
Raise the awareness of the public of the importance of excellent design.
Provide education and leadership opportunities.
Establish and hold our members to the highest standards within our profession of
building design.
Our dedicated members accomplish these goals through a combination of interaction within the
overall design community, development and production of seminars, publications and
conferences, and participation on our board of directors.
For those who have chosen the profession of building design, there is no greater evidence of competency than achieving the status of Certified Professional Building Designer (CPBD). Application for this certification is available to building designers, architects and engineers - both professional members of the AIBD and non-AIBD members - who qualify.

The credential of Certified Professional Building Designer is the highest acknowledgement that a professional member of the AIBD can attain. To qualify, an individual must first possess a minimum of five years of educational and professional design experience. Equally significant, it requires an ongoing commitment to professional development through a continuing education policy and provider program. As with the CPBD credential, a Professional Building Designer must subscribe to AIBD’s code of professional ethics and minimum plan standards.

The AIBD is also meeting the challenge of the future by educating members about new and improved building materials and technology that will impact how we live in the future. In response to the ever changing needs of the design profession, the AIBD board of directors established the National Council of Building Designer Certification (NCBDC), and has charged its leadership with overseeing the Designer Certification Program.
