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:
Sustainable Architectural Practice
Codes and Standards
Energy and the Built Environment
Architects in Government
Public Policy Directory
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.
