Sample Op-Eds - The AIA Board Advocacy Subcommittee on Public Engagement has developed a strategy for speaking out on issues by providing “templated opinion pieces” to component leadership that can either be submitted as letters to the editor or as op-eds to local print and online media. Each month, the committee issues a new op-ed on a hot topic.


As webinars and trainings on the Advocacy Network and other grassroots & ArchiPAC topics become available, AIA Advocacy staff will make them available here. Check back frequently for updates.
