Volunteering as a "Citizen Architect", Serving on the AIA Kentucky Government Affairs Committee, and Contributing to the KSA PAC are just a few ways to help the voice of Kentucky's Architects be heard!

Kentucky Society of Architects Political Action Committee

We know that legislation and regulations affect your business and its bottom line. We also know that when you participate in the political arena, you must play both defense and offense. That’s why the AIA is involved in protecting and advocating for the profession’s interest on key issues – like licensing, procurement, and tax issues.

A Political Action Committee (PAC) is an invaluable political tool that allows architects a greater opportunity to receive a fair hearing on issues and have a seat at the table when decisions are made. The KSA PAC allows Kentucky’s architects to combine financial resources and express the collective interests of the profession in ways that are impossible with individual contributions.

AIA Kentucky constantly works to educate Kentucky legislators about the complicated issues surrounding the practice of architecture. These men and women look to their friends for support in gaining re-election. Through the PAC, AIA Kentucky tries to make fair and reasoned judgments about how to help the profession's friends return to the leadership positions from which they can support our issues.

No matter how big or small, YOUR CONTRIBUTION can aid the KSA PAC in becoming a louder voice for Kentucky’s architectural community. Please visit www.ksapac.com and donate today!

NOTE: Contributions may now be made online via secure PayPal processing. Personal contributions only, per Kentucky law. Support the PAC today!
