ADVOCACY

By promoting impactful, transformative, sustainable, and equitable policies and practices at the local, regional, state and national level, our members play an active role in improving our world.

Impact

We advocate for policies and practices that maximize the positive impact our members have on improving our world.

Sustainability

Our members play an important role in helping protect and steward resources used in the creation of buildings. By supporting sustainable design practices at both an individual and legislative level, we seek to be an active participant in responsibly stewarding the resources we've been given.

Transformation

Architecture is transformative which is why we help our members create designs that positively shape the world in which we live. 

Equity

We believe that the profession and product of architecture should be enjoyed by all regardless of race, gender, or orientation. That's why we host events and advocate for policies that promote equity in the profession.
