AIA Maryland Advocacy Day and Legislative Luncheon

On Thursday, January 31st, AIA Maryland will once again partner with Preservation Maryland to convene a statewide delegation of history, humanities and preservation advocates in Annapolis to let elected officials know that our state’s history is worth protecting.  AIA members will be advocating for the policies, programs and funding that make our work possible.  Members are encouraged to participate in the morning briefing and activities as well as our annual luncheon with legislators at the Chapter House. Join us for all or part of a full day of events (schedule below).

A morning briefing will take place at the AIA Maryland Chapter House in Annapolis and will include a look at priorities for the 2019 Session, as well as strategies for how to hold a fruitful meeting with your legislators. Legislative meetings will take place at the various office locations of our state legislators. Preservation Maryland will assist in scheduling the meetings*, so please let us know about any time constraints. The annual AIA Maryland Legislative Luncheon will take place at the Chapter House, where advocates will be able to spend time with legislators. The Maryland Historical Trust Preservation Awards and evening reception will be located in the Senate Office Building.

*Attendees make their own schedules, and they can come to as many meetings as they like, with an optional awards ceremony and reception in the evening. You do not need to commit to the full day in order to participate, but PLEASE register if you plan to attend any of the day’s events.*
