The Center for Civic Leadership was formed to enable architects to develop leadership skills needed in the practice of today and the future, and in response to a call to establish leadership as a core value for the AIA. For architects, the demand for leadership has never been greater.
Building codes and standards affect every aspect of professional practice, acting as the minimum standard of care that AIA members must meet as licensed professionals. As the AIA engages in the codes and standards development process with ICC and other organizations, this community portal will serve as the gathering place and clearinghouse for codes related activities and discussions.
