AIAS Collaborates with AIA in Rebuild and Renew Advocacy Efforts

The AIA has taken the initiative to establish Architects as a resource for legislators to utilize during the process of crafting the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Through the Rebuild and Renew campaign and in partnership with the alliances the AIA built, we have a piece of legislation that has the promise of getting the U.S. economy moving by putting in place infrastructure for more healthy, vibrant, and sustainable communities. AIAS have been asked to assist AIA members in their advocacy efforts. As emerging professionals we represent communities from all over the country in our different programs and we are aware of the challenges our communities, from small towns to large cities, face on a first hand basis. It is this knowldege students and emerging professionals can contribute to the debate.
