Responding to COVID-19

A Message from Executive Director Tammie Sueirro

We are experiencing unprecedented impacts to our communities and our firms. As we share the responsibility to avoid spreading the COVID-19 virus, we know that the very measures we take to slow the spread can also negatively impact our businesses.

Our staff is working to curate resources to our members so that they can navigate this situation, below is a start to those resources. AIA|WA will work with the local chapters to provide assistance and resources where we can. If you have further resources to share with other members, please forward them to me at tsueirro@aiawa.org.
