2017 Agenda and Statement of Values

The American Institute of Architects has announced its federal agenda, advocating for policies that create more livable and energy efficient communities and emphasizing investments in buildings as key elements of the national infrastructure. The agenda is the result of AIA’s recent survey of its membership, which takes place with each presidential and mid-term election.

The AIA has also published “Where Architects Stand; A Statement of Our Values,” a document that re-asserts the values of the architecture profession and where it stands on a host of issues. This document is intended to be a guidepost for AIA members as they advocate for the profession on the federal, state and local level for policies that foster inclusive, diverse, sustainable and prosperous communities.
