AIA is the voice of architecture to legislators at the federal, state, and local level. Here you can engage your legislators and use AIA tools and resources to develop skills as an advocate to build power for architects.
The AIA works with local, state, federal, code, and international policymakers to advance the interests of architects and the communities they serve. The Board identified six top federal issues on which the AIA has focused this Congress. Below is a brief synopsis of each of those six policy areas and AIA’s position.
