Legislative Day 2017

Date: April 5, 2017
Cost: Free
Location: Begins at AIA NC Center for Architecture & Design
14 East Peace Street
Raleigh, NC 27604

Make your plans now to join AIA North Carolina and our strategic partners in the North Carolina Recovery Coalition--Carolinas AGC, ACEC NC, and PENC-- for the 2017 NC Legislative Day in Raleigh, April 5.  

Join your peers from the design and construction community as we show our strength as an industry to members of the NC General Assembly, as well as spend time face-to-face with influential state legislators.

Priority Issues for 2017:
  • Assist Tier 1 Counties with K-12 School Construction- Rural counties have faced increasing difficulties in generating enough revenue to keep pace with their K-12 school facility needs and replace outdated schools.
  • Transportation Funding- As auto efficiency and changing driving habits have contributed to our decline in stable sources of transportation funding, North Carolina will see a 43% increase in population- placing further strain on the transportation network.
  • Construction Workforce Development- The construction industry in North Carolina is having the most difficult time of any industry finding qualified workers. 
  • Economic Development- Diminished tools used by economic developers over the last few years has lead to significant challenges to North Carolina's economic dominance in the southeast region.

Find Your House and Senate Reps

This year we will be making a concerted effort to match each legislator with a member of AIA who lives in their district in hopes of building long- term relationships. We want our legislators to have access to reliable information about issues associated with the built environment and know our members are among the best resources available. Your participation this year is very important towards that goal. When you register for the day you will be asked to list your House and Senate representatives. The link below will allow you to find them.
