What is the Government Affairs Committee?

The AIA MA Government Affairs Committee (GAC) is the sole committee of AIA MA and open to all individual members of any of the three local member chapters. The mission of the GAC is to actively participate in the legislative process and encourage public advocacy.

How We Participate in the Legislative Process

  • Track current legislation filed by others

    • Participate in strategic decisions to support, oppose, or ignore

  • Seek opportunities for drafting legislation

    • Track national trends

    • Seek input from membership

  • Develop strategic partners for legislation

  • Manage member contacts with the legislature and administration

    • Advocate for our policy positions in meetings and legislative hearing

Our Public Advocacy Efforts

  • Develop specific goals for public advocacy

  • Identify opportunities for individual/local/AIA Mass/AIA National action

  • Partner with other chapter committees to spur advocacy

  • Invite participants and host discussions for a broader audience as part of the Committee agenda
