Join a Committee

Delve into AIA|WA policy issues by joining a committee that works on an issue important to you. The success of AIA|WA depends on member involvement, and we need your voice to tell us what architects want from state government.

Advocacy Events

Connect with fellow AIA|WA members and learn about state policy issues by attending one of AIA|WA’s signature advocacy events:

Capitol Connections – January/February

Join fellow AIA|WA members for our annual state lobby day in Olympia. Learn about the current legislative session and how it impacts architects. Meet with your senator and representatives to discuss issues important to the profession.

Spring Advocacy Conference – May/June

Receive an update on the legislative session and how new policies will impact architects. Meet with a policy committee for an in-depth look at the committee’s issues looking forward. Plan a legislative outreach strategy for the remainder of the year and develop a work plan for the next year’s legislative session.

Advocacy Summit – October 

Learn how to engage in an advocacy campaign and how to effectively communicate your priorities to state government officials. Learn about AIA|WA’s policy priorities and make policy recommendations for the next year’s legislative session.


Meet with your legislators

Take the time to get to know your state senator and representatives by meeting with them in Olympia or in your district outside of the legislative session. State legislators are very accessible and want to know what issues their constituents are concerned about. Start with our Get Involved advocacy guide here. Contact AIA|WA staff if you’d like help with talking points or other information.
