ArchiPAC under review
Published: January 13, 2021
AIA is announcing that ArchiPAC (AIA’s political action committee) has paused all PAC activities and contributions indefinitely, pending further review of the political situation and to enable the development of protocols to address this and future events aimed at undermining American voters. AIA is taking these steps as a direct result of the inflamed rhetoric and violence that preceded last week’s Congressional vote to certify the election of President-Elect Joe Biden.
ArchiPAC was founded 40 years ago to further amplify the voice of architects to Congressional policymakers. ArchiPAC is bipartisan and supports candidates from both political parties who value policies supporting the built environment and advocate for solutions to issues architects face in protecting the health, safety, and welfare of people.
AIA remains a bipartisan organization and ArchiPAC is supported solely by the voluntary contributions of AIA members. Its disbursements are managed by a committee of AIA members. We look forward to resuming activities in the future and representing architects and the profession before Congress.
