Membership Types

NLA offers three levels of membership with packages designed to suit individuals and entire organisations. Our Individual and Corporate members enjoy the learning and networking benefits of being part of the NLA network. Partner members have greater input in helping to shape the NLA programme.

Partner Membership

Our Partner organisations help shape the NLA programme, enjoying regular opportunities to engage with and inform our activities over and above our standard membership benefits.

We work closely with our Partners to identify and develop topic and editorial ideas, speaker suggestions, opportunities to participate in invitation-only events including our influential programme of Think Tank Discussions and input into our bi-annual Insight Studies and exhibitions.

Corporate Membership

At this level an entire organisation gains access to NLA’s network and year-round learning and networking benefits.

Free and discounted places at NLA events (CPD-accredited) are open to any member of staff, alongside multiple invitations to regular networking events, subscriptions to New London Quarterly and discounted sponsorship, awards, event-space hire and advertising.

Individual Membership

As an Individual Member, you become part of the NLA network and enjoy year-round learning and networking opportunities.

Benefits include free and discounted places at NLA events (CPD-accredited), invitations to regular networking events, a subscription to the NLA magazine New London Quarterly and discounts on sponsorship, awards, event-space hire and advertising.

Sponsorship, Advertising & Company Profiling Toggle


Align your organisation with any element of the NLA programme and benefit from association with thought leadership and the best projects being delivered across London’s built environment.

Event Sponsorship provides branding benefits and input into the agenda of a single event. Programme Sponsorship allows for an organisation to align itself against two or more elements of the NLA programme, including conferences, breakfast talks, NLA on Location events, Think Tank discussions, Insight Studies, exhibitions and awards.

Advertising & Company Profiling

Reach the NLA network of architects, engineers, developers, investors, agents, planners, and policy-makers through our advertising and company profile packages.

A number of options are available from a full page colour advert in New London Quarterly to a comprehensive company profile package providing visibility across all of NLA’s digital and printed company and project directories, including the New London Model interactive system. Contact us for more details.
