Who we are?
Since 1980, The American Institute of Architects political action committee (ArchiPAC) has supported the election of pro-architect candidates to Congress. ArchiPAC is governed by a Steering Committee of up to 11 AIA member volunteer leaders, appointed by AIA’s president and confirmed by the Board of Directors. Guided by AIA’s values, these AIA leaders assure all dollars raised and spent advance AIA’s Policy Platform on fostering prosperous, sustainable, and equitable communities that benefit the whole nation.
Who funds ArchiPAC?
ArchiPAC is funded through the voluntary personal contributions of AIA members across the country. Neither AIA member dues nor corporate money fund ArchiPAC.
Who does ArchiPAC contribute to?
ArchiPAC gives to candidates, on a bipartisan basis, who support our legislative agenda outlined in the Architects' Policy Platform and sit on key committee assignments in Congress related to our agenda. ArchiPAC continually reviews its giving criteria to ensure candidates' contributions reflect our values, empower architects' voices, and advance unity and democracy.
