Not-So-Good PAC Fact

Less than 3% of AIA Virginia Members Participate

As of today, only 64 participants have contributed to the AIA Virginia PAC totaling $4,580.  Three of the participants are actually not members.  The membership of AIA Virginia has a 2.6% participation rate.  Though this is the most participation we have had in the first six months of a calendar year in many years, we must do better.  The majority of members say their biggest value with AIA Virginia is Government Advocacy.  Yet, I’m scratching my head in disbelief as the number of practitioners who do public work and contribute to the PAC is microscopic.  Our voice is only a whisper at the table because the PACs of chicken farmers dwarf ours.

Here is how PAC membership participation stacks up by local AIA component:

I’m asking that you please make a contribution to www.aiavapac.org.  No amount is too small or too large.  Help us have a seat at the table as the voice of the ARCHITECT.
