The AIA issues Public Policies and Position Statements as statements of belief to policy-makers, the public, and the construction industry on issues of public policy affecting the membership, the profession of architecture, and The American Institute of Architects. When passed passed by the AIA National Board, these position statements require compliance by all components and member activities when they are acting in an official AIA capacity.
Each Position Statement carries a three-year sunset date. The AIA Board of Directors (Board) is now in the process of conducting a comprehensive sunset review of current Position Statements as mandated under section 9.336 of the Rules of the Board.
Twenty-four (24) Position Statements now at the end of the current three year cycle have been identified for further review.
The 2011 comment period is open from August 15th – October 15th. Comments may be submitted to the AIA through the following link:
