AGC and AIA to Collaborate on Key Initiatives
During the January 26, 2008 meeting of the AIA-AGC Joint Committee in Miami, Fla., leaders of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and AGC discussed several industry issues of mutual interest and jointly agreed to collaborate on the following initiatives:
On at least a monthly basis, the AIA will share its Work-on-the-Boards and Architectural Billings Index (ABI) with AGC and AGC will share its economic data and inflation reports with AIA. Each organization is sharing this information with its respective members.
Joint Advocacy Efforts
Both organizations will work to collaborate on legislative and regulatory efforts in the areas of project delivery, legal status for workers, and infrastructure redevelopment.
Work force Development
The AIA and AGC will seek to collaborate on recruiting efforts for the design and construction industry. Among other things, this involves reaching out to students using new technologies including vehicles such as iTunes and YouTube.
Web Site Exchange
The AIA and AGC will share relevant information via their respective Web sites related to important industry issues such as sustainability.
The AIA and AGC have worked together since the 1920s. The AIA-AGC Joint Committee meets twice each year with the continued goal of promoting joint activities between the national organizations, their chapters, components and affiliates.
