AIA Ohio Legislative Day
On June 8 Ohio architects will gather in Columbus to show our elected officials the important roll architects plays in the lives of all Ohioans. It’s vitally important that AIA Ohio members attend! The Senate is scheduled to vote on the state budget that day and AIA Ohio members need to educate all legislators about AIA Ohio’s legislative priorities. AIA Ohio is currently tracking and communicating with the legislature and state agencies on 15 bills that impact our members’ practices!
