AIA Grassroots 2018 Press Release

AIA’s annual leadership event reinforced one message for architects who want to exert influence: Find a seat at the local table.

Last month AIA Akron representatives attended AIA’s Grassroots Conference held in San Diego, California. Board President-Elect Peter Marks, Past President Eric Pros, AIA

 and Executive Director, Jillian Tipton represented the chapters elected leadership.

AIA’s annual leadership event featured three days of inspiration and insight from mayors, developers, and urban planners, all of whom discussed expanding roles for architects in the reinvigoration of cities and community growth. The consensus: Start local. Find your niche, build your confidence, reinforce your value, and additional opportunities will emerge.

The Grassroots conference is held every year to share knowledge, experiences and challenges for chapter leaders and component officers. If you would like to learn more about Grassroots 2018 and the sessions AIA Akron attended, reach out to Jillian Tipton at jtipton@AIAAkron.org

AIA Ohio Legislative Alert

 

 AIA Ohio Legislative Alert
Update: Status of Interior Design Licensing Bill (HB504)
David Field CAE
Hon. AIA Executive Vice President

As you may know Rep. Dorothy Pelanda has introduced HB504 which would enact a certification program for interior designers doing commercial work in Ohio. The Ohio House Economic Development, Commerce and Labor Committee held a sponsor’s hearing on the bill February 27 and a proponent hearing March 20 prior to taking a spring recess March 26 to April 9.

Since the bill’s introduction, there have been ongoing discussions at AIA National as to whether the policy that states that “AIA generally opposes practice or title regulation of individuals or groups other than architects and engineers for the design of buildings” should be revisited. AIA EVP/CEO, Robert Ivy, FAIA, has had conversations with Cheryl Durst (EVP and CEO of IIDA National) on this topic.
AIA National is aware that a sizable portion of AIA’s membership fall on both sides of this issue and that the two organizations share many members. As a result, they have indicated that “we are trying to be thoughtful in our response to the most recent bill, HB 504.”
Over the past five weeks, an AIA Ohio Task Force has been developing a position on HB504 which will be submitted at the appropriate time in the legislative process and simultaneously distributed to all AIA Ohio members.
