Top Issue: Licensing

AIA Georgia works tirelessly to make sure licensing in the state is managed efficiently for the profession and enforced to ensure architecture is kept safe and the health, safety and wellness obligations of architects are met. These goals are accomplished through close work with the Secretary of State office and the Georgia Board of Architects and Interior Designers.

The Chapter also works closely with allies in the general assembly ensuring legislation continues to serve the profession effectively.
