Got Advocacy? This month affords several opportunities to learn more about how the AIA advocates for you AND how to get more involved. AIA Pittsburgh is hosting AIA PA President Scott Compton, AIA and AIA PA Executive Director Stephen Swarney for two days of events. You can also see AIA Pittsburgh by the numbers as our 2017 AIA PGH Annual Report has just been released. And finally, be sure to save-the-date of October 25th for the Design Pittsburgh Awards Ceremony and Gala. More details coming soon.
