AIA’s COVID-19 Resources & Response

Updated June 26, 2020

AIA Pittsburgh is coordinating with AIA National, AIA Pennsylvania, other AIA chapters and partners to provide our members with resources, best practices and timely information to support our community through the COVID-19 response.

We will be updating our COVID-19 Resources and Response page on a regular basis and suggest you bookmark it. We are aware that everyone is getting a lot of emails and want to be thoughtful about how much we send you. That said, we want to provide you with ready access to useful tools and data.

Be sure to stay up to date with AIA Pittsburgh by subscribing to the newsletter, here.

The most important service we can provide is to keep our members safe, healthy and informed. Let us know what you or your firm needs so we can best target our resources to support you.

Contact Us: AIA staff is working remotely but otherwise our services are unchanged. The best way to reach us is via email:

Committee Meetings: For the time being, all AIA committee meetings will be held via conference call. Committee members will be contacted with call-in information before scheduled meetings.
