The Public Policy Board meets the first Tuesday of the month from noon-1:30pm. Current agendas and meeting notes from the previous meeting are posted on the righthand side of this page.
If you are interested in having the Public Policy Board review an advocacy issue, please submit it to Lisa Richmond two weeks prior to the meeting date.
The AIA Seattle Public Policy Board is an appointed board, comprised of a Chair and Vice Chair, (both of whom are AIA Seattle Board members), and three or more additional AIA Seattle members selected by the Board of Directors and appointed by the President. The Chair will work in collaboration with the Executive Director and his/her staff designee in charge of government relations. All are welcome to attend Public Policy Board meetings. In order to ensure the Public Policy Board benefits from the knowledge of our various AIA Seattle volunteer committees, members of said AIA Seattle Committees such as COTE, Code, and Urban Design Committee are encouraged to attend as appropriate. Committees are encouraged to take positions to the Public Policy Board in order to maximize their impact.
