Approximately 75% of all firms within the AIA are small firms (10 employees or less), which equates to 14,288 small firms within the organization.
~25% = sole practitioners = 4,750
~35% = 1-5 employees = 6,650
~15% = 5-10 employees = 2,850We need to find ways to leverage that size for collaboration and influence, just like the individual large firms do.

Hi All,A handful of us have been working on developing the following living google doc:Covid 19 Architecture Firm Best Practices, Communications, and Policieshttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1jTd3JJdw8HnjYzwApa0q2gAz7DW8v_SGAfPmdnhwkjI/editWe are working to update this document daily with content that we source from our architecture community - including resource links, best practices, etc...As far as I know, it is the only resource that is publishing internal communication and temp policies that are being created/sent to firms - but we could use more, especially from XS and S firms.If you are willing to share any of the communications/policies that have been created by your firm please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are carefully scrubbing all firm identifying information and organizing them into the document by firm size. The only communications where we keep the firm name are those that have been publically sent out on their email listserves.
Please help us continue to grow this resource and let us know where we should be prioritizing our findings.
For those of you that have transitioned to remote work and have best practices to share, please forward those as well.Thanks again - and hope you are all staying safe and healthy!
