Event Tickets

Refunds are offered up until 48 hours before an event. No refunds or credit will be offered after an event has passed.


For refunds of all tickets, a non-refundable processing fee of 6% of the purchase price, or $5 (whichever is greater) will be charged.


If you are unable to attend an event for which you have purchased tickets, and notify the Chapter no later than 48 hours before the event, you may apply the amount paid with no subtracted fees to a similar AIALA event within one year of purchase (i.e. $35 tour ticket for $35 tour ticket, $15 committee lecture ticket for $15 committee roundtable ticket). If you would like to transfer your ticket to a future event, please notify an AIA|LA staff or email orders@aialosangeles.org no later than 48 hours before the event. Tickets may only be transferred once. If you do not notify us that you wish to transfer your ticket credit before the event, no transferrable credit will be offered.

Registration Fees

For refunds and cancellations of registration fees for all AIA|LA awards and competitions, a non-refundable processing fee of 6% of the purchase price, or $10 (whichever is greater) will be charged. If you have registered but choose not to submit for the awards program or competition, you may receive a refund of the registration cost minus processing fee up until submissions close. Once submissions have closed, you are entitled to a 50% refund until the end of the registration year. After the end of the registration year (December 31st), no refunds in any amount or credit for registrations will be offered.
