A letter from the President
Dear AIA Columbus Members,
On Tuesday, May 28, 2019 was AIA Ohio Advocacy Day at the Statehouse. The event was attended by many architects from AIA Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and other Ohio Chapters. We had the opportunity to visit our state legislators and discuss initiatives related to payment assurance for architects, engineers and other consultants who work for private entities. In addition, we had the opportunity to discuss relevant issues related to licensure and designing safer schools. We are also closely monitoring a bill that requires state agencies to reduce the regulatory restrictions by 30% by 2022, including building and fire codes (Department of Commerce).
Our Committee on Advocacy will be following these initiatives very closely and will continue to engage you as we find opportunities. We encourage you to join this committee and/or participate on these initiatives sponsored by the Committee. Consider joining the conversation as it will be great for our community and equally rewarding for you!
Yanitza Brongers-Marrero, AIA
