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 (less than 10 employees), which equates to 14,459 small firms within the organization.
~26.8% = sole practitioners = 5,173
~33.5% = 1-5 employees = 6,459
~14.7% = 5-10 employees = 2,827
We need to find ways to leverage that size for collaboration and influence, just like the individual large firms do.
In an atmosphere where LLC owners may disappear, their land does not. During this interactive presentation, you'll learn about lien rights, your management steps, and concerns about using your lien rights.
While most architects don't use their lien rights, those who do know it's an important part of doing business. Join us to discover how to make the most of this powerful tool in your practice.
