Nottingham and Derby Society of Architects

Anyone can join – free membership

Do you care about architecture?

Joining the society will help you to become part of the conversation and debate about the places in which we live, work and play. 

Membership will get you our newsletter and priority access to events, talks and discussions organised by the NDSA and our partners. 

If you are a member of the public you can join for free as a friend of the society and gain access to relevant events, exhibitions and activities. 

If you work in the profession, related industries or you are student of architecture you can become a full member which gets you access to all events. 

Members of The Royal Institute of British Architects in the region have automatic membership of NDSA.
