CMD Insight for Architects


Less Than Two Weeks Left to Make Your Voice Heard

By Amanda Stratton, Manager, Grassroots & Advocacy Outreach

    Now that Congress is back to work, we wanted to make sure that you had the chance to tell them what is important to you.

    Next year, Congress will make decisions that will affect you and your practice in countless ways, from the taxes you pay to the rules that affect how building projects get off the ground.

    That is why we need your help by November 8 – to make sure that when Congress debates policies that affect architects, they hear from architects.

    The 2014 Call for Issues survey asks your views on important issues, but it will also let us know how members believe the AIA should prioritize its agenda. Which issues do members care about so strongly that they are willing to take action? Is the AIA providing the resources you need to participate in the democratic process? Tell us what we are doing right and what we can do better!

    Please take this short survey to share your views on the AIA’s policy agenda and tools for member engagement.

    We need to hear from you, and fast. You must complete the survey by November 8 to make sure the AIA can analyze the results and plan for changes to better serve you as a member. That means you only have less than two weeks remaining! If you have already taken the Call for Issues survey, we want to thank you profusely for your participation.

    So far over 3400 members have made their voice heard.  Our goal is to hear from at least 4000. Can you help us reach that goal?

    Your views will not only help shape the message that the AIA takes to Capitol Hill next year, but will shape how the AIA provides you with the tools you need to be involved. However, if you don’t take the survey, your voice won’t be heard.

    Over 3400 of your peers have voiced their opinions – don’t be left out!

    Please take a moment to share your views with us.
