AIA National Advocacy

The AIA represents the interests of architects before federal, state, and local governments and other policy-making bodies and organizations, working closely with the local components including AIA Alaska and the AIA Alaska State Council to assist with local and state advocacy efforts.

At the federal level, the AIA's Government Affairs Department works with the U.S. Congress, White House and various agencies to educate government leaders and others about the profession and the AIA's policies, positions, and objectives pertaining to community development and livability, as well as the business and practice of architecture. This effort involves the AIA in a range of issues including housing, urban renewal, accessibility, historic preservation, energy, environmental standards, security, government design practices, school construction, transportation, procurement, project delivery, small business operations, and tax policy.

Visit the AIA Government Advocacy web site to learn more.   This site includes a wealth of resources including: AIA's Congressional Issue Agenda, AIA Federal Issue Briefs, as well as State and local Issue Areas and Resource Pages. Log in to see how your Alaska legislators stand on key issues relating to the architectural profession.

The AIA also publishes an excellent guide to understanding how the American Institute of Architects anĂ¥d its members can assist policy makers.  Click here to learn more about The Architect as a Legislative Resource.
