AIA Austin directs ongoing advocacy efforts with the general community on the value of design and the work of architects. AIA Austin actively promotes and leverages the expertise of its members to influence and shape the designed environment, as well as policies and legislation affecting that environment. AIA Austin Board of Directors established the President’s Board Advocacy Committee in 2009 to focus specifically on efforts to best address both internal and external advocacy efforts. The President’s Board Advocacy Committee meets monthly to assist Chapter leadership, AIA committees, and our membership in coordinating consistent and systematic efforts to promote the expertise of our membership and identify audiences, venues, and mediums to communicate and advance the values of our organization.
