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.
