The Association for Women in Architecture (AWA) was originally founded in 1922 as Alpha Alpha Gamma, a national sorority for women architecture students. In 1934 the alumnae of the sorority formed the Association of Women in Architecture (AWA) as an organization for professional women architects.Today (1988) the AWA exists only through its Los Angeles chapter, with a membership of approximately 200 women architects and designers in the Los Angeles area, with members-at-large across the country. In 1984 the AWA altered its name to the Association FOR Women in Architecture.
