The Society of American Registered Architects (SARA) was founded in 1956 as a professional society that includes the participation of all architects, regardless of their roles in the architectural community. SARA follows the Golden Rule and supports the concept of profitable professionalism for its members.

SARA has 11 Councils in 8 states, including our Pennsylvania Council. The aim of SARA Pennsylvania Council to provide its members and all who use this website, an opportunity to share information and ideas. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about our Council, architecture in Pennsylvania or architecture in general. Our motto since 1956 is "Architect Helping Architect". We look forward to helping you.
