The AIA issues Public Policies and Position Statements as statements of belief to policy-makers, the public, and the construction industry on issues of public policy affecting the membership, the profession of architecture, or The American Institute of Architects. Each year the Board Advocacy Committee is tasked with overseeing the review of these statements and provides an opportunity for public comment prior to final board action. The public comment period is open from August 15th – October 15th.
In 2011 there are twenty-four statements currently up for review. We invite you to review any or all of the statements and provide comments for consideration by the AIA Board Advocacy Committee for inclusion in their formal recommendations to the Board of Directors in December.
To review the statements and provide your comments, visit the AIA National website.
