Issues & AdvocacyFederal
Don’t Miss Out! Last Week to Share Your Thoughts
By Amanda Stratton, Manager, Grassroots & Advocacy Outreach
Friday is the last day you have the chance to tell the AIA what you think Congress should focus on next year!
In 2014, 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 this Friday, 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. If you have already taken the Call for Issues survey, we want to thank you profusely for your participation.
This is also your last opportunity to share your views on key public policy position statements. The AIA Board Advocacy Committee has put up three statements for review. Once the members' review of these statements is complete the AIA’s Board Advocacy committee will either accept or reject the changes and present them to the AIA Board for final approval. To review the current directory of all the Public Policy & Position Statements, click here.
So far over 3700 members have made their voice heard. Our goal is to hear from at least 4000. We are under 300 responses away…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 3700 of your peers have voiced their opinions – don’t be left out!
