Position of the UPA-BUA within the profession
The UPA-BUA, Royal Professional Union of Architects, is active in our three communities and the three regions. It is strongly bound to FAB (Federation of Architects Associations of Belgium) since the beginning and is represented in its three regional wings: it therefore participates in the actions of the Walloon Union of Architects (UWA), the Architects 'in Brussels (AriB) and the Beroepsvereniging van Architecten (BVA). It hence can act directly or through these associations in which it takes part (any member of the UPA is automatically affiliated with these entities).
UPA-BUA members have important mandates in these organizations as well as in the international organizations of which FAB is co-founding: the ACE-CAE (Architect Council of Europe) and the IUA (International Union of Architects).
