To make it official that one was a certified architect, laws had to be made and a group of professionals had to come up with proper laws. Before the American Institute of Architects was formed people would abuse the profession and this led to the introduction of laws to govern and regulate Architects. The laws made to govern the different architects were put in their constitution in the year 1860. It was named the New York Society of Architects which later on came to be known as the American Institute of Architect.
American Institute of Architects has registered over 100,000 members who are licensed and work professionally under the code of ethics and professional conduct. The architects have to adhere to the code of conduct which is supposed to make the client be sure that the chosen architect is dedicated to their work and will perform their duties as required by the law. Architects no longer get rogue because of the American Institute of Architects which has come to make sure that architects work professionally across the country with the help of their able CEO Mr. Robert Ivy who is a respected person among all architects.
