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 the value of small firms, the national SFx, and local
         SFx groups, both within the AIA and to the public.
     2. Curate and disseminate the most pertinent resources and
         information, from the AIA & elsewhere, that benefit small firms.

     3. Inform the AIA of current issues facing small firms and areas
         in which current resources/information are lacking.


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 = 2,850

We need to find ways to leverage that size for collaboration and influence, just like the individual large firms do.

Be sure to "Join our Community" !  This will ensure that you're a part of our mailing list and receive our quarterly newsletter and important small firm information.

Zero Code, a renewable grid, and getting to an emissions-free building sector: we're counting on CA

  • 1.  Zero Code, a renewable grid, and getting to an emissions-free building sector: we're counting on CA

    Posted 11-11-2019 05:05 PM

    "If enacted, a Zero Code would essentially mandate emissions-free new buildings almost immediately." ....

     "The question for all of us isn't if we will transition into a cleaner future, but when, and how quickly. The time is now." ....

     "If you live in California, especially, write or call Governor Newsom, urging him to support a renewable grid, a Zero Code, an emissions-free building sector immediately."

    (Even if you don't live in California, let him know that right now, the nation is depending on leadership from states and cities who know that being responsive to climage change now is the only way to a positive future.)
