What Does AIA Do?
By belonging to the AIA, our members have made a commitment to meet continuing education standards, and to serve their communities through advocacy programs.
AIA empowers architects to design a world that allows people, communities, and our planet to thrive.
Congress recognizes that architects are vital to crafting public policy solutions that impact their constituents. Use this Action Center to directly message your Member of Congress. The more architects who weigh in, the more effective our collective influence will be to positively impact these and other important issues facing the profession, our businesses, and the communities we serve.
