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.


Up Next...

The SARA PA Council Committees are working to deliver our members, students, and the architecture community a number of great events this year. Our annual events, the Golf Outing and the Design Awards, are going to be here in no time. We have preliminary information available in their respective events pages below. Mark your calendar and sign up now!

SARA PA Newsletter is getting an overhaul

Our former newsletter chair, Mitch Abramowitz, retired from his post in summer, 2016.  The council thanks him for his tireless efforts to bully committees for photos and reports, build content, layout the newsletter, obtain sponsorship, and to promote the organization through the quarterly publication. Finding a person to fill his shoes with the same devotion and commitment is a nearly impossible task. Instead we will be moving to a blog format that allows for smaller, more frequent updates. The blog will reside here on our website on the NEWS page and we will continue to email updates to our mailing list.
