Weekly Highlights


In 2012, the AIA Michigan Board approved the establishment of a separate Architect's Political Action Committee (APAC) to provide financial support to those Michigan lawmakers that support legislation beneficial to AIA Michigan. 

APAC takes a non-partisan approach:  we support Legislatorswho have demonstrated their support for our goals and objectives.  The APAC By-Laws require that APAC focus on state elections only- not local or national elections.  This is because state law affects the practice of architecture, not local laws.
A key goal of APAC is to be responsive to campaign funding requests that come in from state legislature candidates.  APAC financially supported 18 legislative election campaigns in 2013 and 10 campaigns in 2014.(continue reading)

The ICC has just made available the 2015 Michigan Residential Code. This will be enforced as of 2-8-2016.
