Who we are

The mission of the AIA Small Firm Exchange (SFx) is to advance the mutual interests of architects practicing in small firms. The objectives of the AIA SFx are three-fold:

1. Advocate for small firms within the AIA and in outside organizations and agencies.
2. Promote leadership in Small Firm professional development and practice; and
3. Facilitate and support the local component round tables and small firm networks.

    Just over a year ago, I posted an invitation on KnowledgeNet for small architectural firms to share the digital tools they find useful in their work. Since that time data - and even spreadsheet formatting - have been contributed by many.  The results show some interesting patterns.  

    If you are curious, would like to update an earlier entry, or add to the 'conversation', feel free to use the link below.

    PS: This project was driven by a desire to find a means for more proactive support of digital resources needed by small architectural firms.  I expect a pilot program to ready for launch this fall.
