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.

    PRESS RELEASE: Architecture, Engineering and Construction Leaders Call on Biden to Take Action on Green Building

    If your business or organization is involved in any way in the realm of the built environment (both buildings and infrastructure), we welcome you as a signatory. We want to grow our list of signatories by March 10, and then resend the letter with the expanded signatory list back to the White House to confirm, and punctuate, how ready the buildings and infrastructure industries are to rise to meet the climate challenges associated with our important, but emissions-intensive work. To sign the letter, please complete this form and once you do, please share this post.
