Request for Volunteers
Government Affairs "Minute Man" ListThe Government Affairs Director is looking for volunteers to assist in the Legislative process. Each year the SC Legislative considers Laws that impact Architects. We need to be prepared to express our option and viewpoint as opportunities present themselves. Sometimes sending e-mails and letters to committee members is all that is needed. Other times we need to appear in front of a committee and formally testify. In most cases, however, we typically have very little time to respond when the opportunity is right. A "Minute Man" list will create a list of volunteers to call on when action is required. It will spread the responsibility to more than a handful of our members, and will allow volunteers to focus on only one or two issues, so they can be better prepared and quicker to respond when needed.
Read the list of current outstanding bills and issues that were not resolved during the latest Legislative session and find out how you can serve your profession.
AIA National News
Currently AIA Board of Directors is conducting a sunset review of many of the AIA's position statements. As part of that review process, there is currently an open comment period where component leaders, committees, members and other stakeholder groups can submit revision suggestions for review and possible adoption. The comment period is open until November 17. The Board is scheduled to take final action on sunset recommendations during its December 2008 meeting. This is your opportunity to have direct input to the Board (and Board Advocacy Committee) on issues such as those discussed in Puerto Rico:The deadline is November 17, 2008. It is very important for you to review your direct input and comment on all AIA policies and positions approved by the Board of Directors, as they are binding on all component activity in the policy arena.
