State Wide Advocacy

AIAMD logo_06State Wide Advocacy

Architects need to get involved in the political process for three reasons:

Architects have a lot to give.  Architects impact the lives of everyone in the communities they serve. The architectural profession employees more than 275,000 Americans and it is part of the design/construction industry, which represents 8 percent to 10 percent of the U.S. economy. Architects need a strong voice on a wide range of issues from community planning, housing, sustainability, building codes, project delivery, historic preservation, and a wealth of other issues.

Architects have a lot to lose.  It is easy to take for granted what has already been earned – architectural practice acts, qualifications based selection for design services, tax provisions for historic preservation, to name a few – but all of this work can be undone by a legislator who is unaware of the purpose of these important victories of the past.

Through the AIA, Architects have a unified voice on the business and the design issues important to all of us.
