With the start of the New Year just hours away, ArchiPAC is introducing Race for the ArchiCUP, a fun way for members to amplify their voices and to become involved in AIA’s Advocacy efforts.  The ArchiCUP Race will begin January 1 and run through July 15, 2016 and focuses on team efforts to raise money in support of the AIA advocacy efforts at the national level.  Teams can be made up of any members – from anywhere in the country.  You can have a local team, a regional team, or a team just from your office.  This is a new way to become an active member in support of our advocacy team, and a great way for members to get involved.  To help, we have developed the ArchiPAC Playbook, a short manual to help  members, and team captains, succeed.  We hope you take the time to organize a team and become part of this new effort and join us as we work with more than 87,000 members from across the country to make our voices heard.  What happens on Capitol Hill does matter, and we want you to be part of this effort.
