AIA government and political advocacy is about advancing the Institute’s core values through the engagement of local, state and national policymakers which cannot happen without participation by its members.
The AIA CA Chapter Advocacy Liaisons are effective by monitoring and reporting policy issues relevant to his/her chapter, receiving news and information from AIA CA and dispersing it to chapter members, helping to coordinate local advocacy initiatives, and providing feedback on how AIA CA can better serve chapters on advocacy issues.
The goal of the AIA CA Advocacy Liaison Network is to assist AIA CA’s efforts to impact the political landscape by improving the built environment at a grassroots’ and local level. Besides supplementing the advocacy work in Sacramento, the Chapter Advocacy Liaison Network continues to spread the word about how architecture can greatly impact the community at large for the better.
The following are the individuals named by participating chapters as the AIA CA Advocacy Liaison.
