AIA State Government Network in Madison
AIA Wisconsin hosted the 28th annual AIA State Government Network meeting in Madison. Over 100 AIA leaders from 43 states gathered in mid-July to share information and compare strategies on emerging state legislative issue trending across the country. The presentations and interactive sessions focused on attacks on professional licensure, building code rollbacks, threats to the qualifications-based selection of architects and tools architects can use to build better communities. AIA Wisconsin members led tours of the State Capitol and UW-Madison campus. Wisconsin State Representative Chris Taylor welcomed attendees to Madison at an opening reception at the historic Stoner House.
