Welcome to AIA Advocacy

For more than 150 years, the members of the American Institute of Architects have worked to advance our quality of life through design. From designing the next generation of energy-saving buildings to making our communities healthier and more vibrant, from helping neighborhoods rebuild after disasters to exporting American design know-how to the rest of the world, architects turn dreams and aspirations into reality. Decisions are being made every day that affect the way architects practice by federal, state, and local lawmakers, and AIA Advocacy aims to serve its members as the voice of the profession to the decision-makers at all levels of government. Whether you are looking to make a difference in your local community or abroad on an architectural services trade mission, AIA Advocacy gives you the tools you need to make the impact you desire.
