As we approach the end of 2013, the AIA Board Advocacy Committee of the AIA Board of Directors is working to develop an agenda for the coming year that is based not on the concerns of what happens in Washington, but rather our members.  In an effort to better understand needs, we ask that each member participate in our 2014 Call for Issues Survey.  The survey should only take about five minutes and will be extremely helpful to both the board and staff.

This survey seeks your views on a wide range of topics, and the responses will be used by the Board Advocacy Committee to establish priorities for the coming year as we continue to be more proactive in our efforts.  This is a great opportunity to contribute your thoughts to AIA’s advocacy effort.

Also included in the effort is a review of the Board Advocacy Committee’s review of three of the Institutes Policy and Position Statements.  We need your input to better understand member views on our public policy.  If you wish to review the current statements, they are available on the Advocacy Website.

This is an opportunity to help direct the work of the national advocacy team and your input is needed.  We thank you for your time and energy in advancing the needs and issues of the profession.
