We made it to 2020! Welcome to the 11 month race to the election day! Since the last presidential election in 2016, AIA has created priorities, or federal agenda to focus our advocacy efforts for the betterment of our designed communities. Where architects stand: A statement of our values
According to Sarah Dodge, AIA Sr. Vice President of Advocacy & Relationships, “this election will be critical to how the United States addresses the issues of our time, including mitigating and adapting to climate change, housing affordability, school safety, student debt, and changes to tax law in support of sustainable development, community investment, historic preservation, and hazard mitigation.”
This is why AIA National has created a guide to provide “a factual and objective overview to help you evaluate the presidential candidates and their positions on issues that matter to architects, see AIA 2020 Presidential Candidate Profiles.
This new online tool features each candidate’s stance on the issues related to the profession, and draws from campaign websites, nonpartisan organizations, public comments, and voting records. The tool allows you to evaluate the candidate’s whole record or you can see where all the candidates stand on a specific issue.
AIA, or AIA SD makes no candidate recommendation with these profiles. We are not endorsing a candidate. The information provided below is for your consideration as you make your own determination on the candidates.
AIA South Dakota is the professional non-profit membership association of architects, future architects, and partners in the building and design industries, and the state chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) AIA South Dakota advances the mission that design matters in every South Dakota community.
