AIA Lobby Day 2024

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and more than 400 of its architect members attended meetings on February 28 with their Members of Congress. As professionals and constituents, AIA members advocated for legislation that benefits communities and their inhabitants.

Key issues included:

  • Promoting bipartisan legislation through H.R. 964/S. 366 to ensure local community input in the design of federal buildings
  • The repeal of the harmful research and development amortization tax provision through H.R. 7024
  • Eliminating arbitrary fee limitations on A/E Federal Contracts to address growing scope and complexity of federal projects

AIA Lobby Day is one component of this year’s AIA Leadership Summit. AIA’s Lobby Day provides architects with a platform to directly advocate in support of legislation impacting the profession. Visit AIA’s website to learn more about its advocacy efforts.

“Architects are responsible for protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public through design excellence, environmental stewardship and securing the future of our communities,” said AIA 2024 President Kimberly Dowdell. “It is critical for our voices to be heard on Capitol Hill. We must advocate for legislation that acknowledges and reinforces the pivotal role of the architecture profession in society.”

Nine AIA Columbus members participated in AIA Lobby Day.
