New Resources: Leadership and Advocacy
By Tatyana Brown, Manager, Public Policy
AIA Components now have access to resources and insights from over a dozen innovative initiatives supported by the two-year Component Assistance Leadership Grants Program. Funded for two years in 2011 and 2012, the program was intended to accelerate innovation by helping to pilot and share learning from replicable projects valuable to the broad AIA community.
The lessons and resources from these programs can help your component advance architects’ leadership in their communities, professional lives, and academia. Successful initiatives from 2011 include five different component leadership programs. The final round of grants in 2012 offers insights and resources from seven additional components. Their experience will help you launch replicable initiatives to advance leadership at individual firms and among emerging professionals. It will also help your component strengthen advocacy for healthy, livable, and quality-designed built environments.
Replicable 2012 programs at AIA San Diego and AIA St. Louis were recently profiled on our website. Stay tuned this June and later in the year to hear about other initiatives across the country!
