AIA Orlando needs members to take lead for advocacy in their local communities: to strengthen the voice of the architectural profession through the engagement of legislators, their staff, and other AIA members on issues that affect architects. Some of the key areas of focus for the Government Affairs Committee include growth management, historic resources, school construction, & urban design.

AIA Orlando Advocacy Teams had a long and great day at the state Capitol! It is so fulfilling to know that we have the freedom and ability to meet with our lawmakers.
Today was especially meaningful as our advocacy teams from AIA Orlando & other American Institute of Architects chapters covering the whole state, met with our state senators and representatives.
We discussed our priority issues - Affordable housing, enhanced building codes and design for a more resilient future, regular inspections of coastal condos, enhancements to disaster shelters, and more.
