AIA DesignVote

With AIA DesignVote, look at the profession’s legislative present and future.

DesignVote is a program of the AIA established to encourage architects to engage in the electoral process and to learn more about candidates for office. Governmental decisions – both legislative and regulatory - have a great impact on the design and construction industry. 

The design and construction industry is the linchpin of our economy, accounting for one in ten dollars of gross domestic product and millions of well-paying jobs. DesignVote is a program that helps your practice with resources that help promote a positive environment for business and design.

    Congressional Score Card – AIA tracked the actions of the current congress on a list of bills and a selection of key votes.  These bills were actively lobbied by the AIA during the 111th Congress and are supported by the AIA goals to promote a positive business environment, promote sustainability, and other policy goals.

    Resources – The tool kits are useful resources that will help strengthen your local AIA chapter’s relationship with elected officials and can assist your components ability to take a position on a key issue in your community.  These efforts are improved by coordinating your effort and message with AIA national and other AIA components.
