2015: The Year of the Advocate

<p>Every day, policymakers make decisions that affect the practice of architecture and the built environment. No matter the kind of work you perform and where you perform it, decisions made from Washington, DC to your state capitol to city hall affect you. It?s up to all AIA members to make sure their voice is heard, which is what advocacy is all about. That is why 2015 is the Year of the Advocate at the AIA.</p>

Getting Involved

<p>The responsibility of an AIA member advocate is to represent the profession's interests before their representatives. There are many competing interests out there, and that is why it is important to contact your legislators and their staff on a regular basis. Doing so will make sure that legislators keep issues important to architects in the forefront of their minds when making policy decisions.</p>

<p> <a href=> Do your part for your profession and your community.</a></p>


<p>ArchiPAC is the bipartisan political action committee of the American Institute of Architects.

Funded by AIA members' voluntary contributions, ArchiPAC is the tool that architects use to voice the AIA's positions to our nationally elected leaders on issues affecting the built environment, our profession, our communities, and our practices.</p>
