AIA Pennsylvania’s Director of Legislative Affairs, Amal Mahrouki, will be holding a webinar on April 1st at 12 noon to give you a primer on best practice for these meetings and get you up to speed on the issues that emerged as top priority from AIA PA members in the 2019-2020 Legislative Session as well as their current status in the legislature.

  • Rebuild the PAC for the New Legislative Session

    As part of your District Days participation, the Pennsylvania Architects Political Action Committee requests your support to rebuild the PAC for this legislative session. Your support of the PAC enables AIA Pennsylvania to speak with a unified voice to educate and impact the legislature on the issues important to the practice of architecture in Pennsylvania as well as the health, safety, and welfare of Pennsylvania communities as touched by the practice. Your contribution to the PAC will assure that we can have important conversations communicating our issues to advocate for PA architects' needs. As the adage goes, "If you're not at the table, you're on the menu." Let's ensure architects are at the table by reinforcing the crumbling PAC. All PAC donors will receive a soon to be minted 2019-2020 PAC Pin, designed by AIA PA President, Chip Desmone, AIA. $20 is the suggested investment in your profession but any donation is key for rebuilding the PAC.

    *Contributions to Pennsylvania Architects PAC are not tax deductible for federal income tax purposes. Contributions to the Pennsylvania Architects PAC are for political purposes. All contributions to the Pennsylvania Architects PAC are voluntary. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. The proposed contribution amounts are suggestions; you may choose to contribute more or less, or not at all. AIA Pennsylvania will not favor or disadvantage anyone by reason of the amount of their contribution or their decision not to contribute. State law requires political committees to report the name, address, occupation and name of employer for each individual whose contributions aggregate in excess of $250 in a calendar year.
