The Uganda Society of Architects (USA), emerged initially from the East African Institute of Architects, Uganda Chapter – as it was called in 1952 – with its patron as the then President of Uganda Dr. Apollo Milton Obote. The Uganda chapter, at that time, was founded on the initiative of five prominent architects, G.C. Bodgner, R.C.W. Browning, R. Freeman, A.W.C. Inglus and T.W. Waston.

However, in 1966 the Uganda Society of Architects was formed after the Uganda Chapter streamlined itself from the East African Institute of Architects. The main objective of the Society was to bring together architects from all over Uganda in a union of their professional associations.
