AIA Arizona, alongside our lobbyist, supports the needs of the architecture profession by building relationships with organizations and legislators that affect local and state policies. AIA Arizona has an active Government Affairs Committee that continually monitors legislative activity at the federal and state level. These components work together to protect and promote the interests of all Arizona architects
