Grassroots: Legislation & Leadership

AIA Nevada leaders travel to Washington, DC each February. The purpose of our annual trip is twofold - First, to speak directly with our congressional representatives about the current legislative issues that are most important to architects and the practice of architecture; Second, to meet with the leadership from other chapters from across the country and explore ways in which we can work more closely together to become “one AIA”. The effort to unify our organization and organize our resources to benefit all members is essential to building the future of the profession. While in DC, our chapter leaders confer with others from across the country and share their knowledge and experiences as well.

Our positions are as follows:
