AIAOC Chapter History

Balboa Pavilion Newport Beach

AIA Orange County (AIAOC), a Chapter of The American Institute of Architects, was established in 1952 by 18 members.  It is a tribute to the dynamic growth of this unique area that this chapter is now the third largest chapter in the State of California with over 800 members.  Our first Chapter Office and Home was in the Balboa Pavilion.
