UPA-BUA Union Professionnelle d'Architectes
Beroepsunie Van Architecten

Membership

Why join the UPA-BUA ?


Becoming a member of a professional union is first of all believing in one's profession and future by supporting the actions of colleagues who are active at different levels to inform architects, defend them and promote their profession and architecture. It is also not to remain isolated and be able to exchange or debate professional issues and to be kept informed, through publications, presentations and trips or visits.

By being UPA-BUA member you are automatically affiliated to the UWA (Walloon Union of Architects), the AriB (Architects' in Brussels), and the BVA (Beroepsvereniging van Architecten).

By affiliating you will receive our free publication of the Quarterly Bulletin and the Unit Prices Schedule (of a value of 100 €) and benefit from free or discounted travels, seminars and conferences.


Who can join UPA-BUA ?

Any architect or engineer-architect graduated from a Belgian or foreign institute (with an equivalent level of training) can register for UPA-BUA, which he / she exercises as a trainee, as an independent as a civil servant or as a teacher, as a principal or secondary function, in Belgium or abroad.

How to join the UPA-BUA?

To join, simply fill out the application form. Once this formality is fulfilled, you benefit directly from the services and benefits granted to the members of our association (publications, participation in activities, etc.). At the next Statutory General Assembly, which takes place each year at the end of January your application will be submitted to the members for approval. You will then be included in the lists of our union.
