Advocacy: Making a difference

For more than 150 years, we have been advocating on architecture’s most pressing issues. Today, we are nearly 88,000 members strong, standing together to make sure architects have their voice heard.

Leading change

In federal, state and local governments, we work to advance the field of architecture. We advocate for:

  • policies that shape smart decisions and encourage innovation
  • legislation that secures the future of the profession and allows communities to  benefit from the value of architecture
  • regulations and codes that ensure buildings and spaces are healthy and safe
