FAPAC COMPONENT CHALLENGE


The Florida Architects Political Action Committee (FAPAC) supports advocacy on behalf of Florida architects. The purpose of FAPAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by architects help elect candidates who understand and support your interests. Advocacy and grassroots engagement are the keys to protecting your practice.

Now more than ever, it is critical for Florida architects to come together and invest in our voice. 2022 is an election year with the entire Florida Legislature up for election. Join AIA Florida and AIA Florida Northwest for the 2022 FAPAC Component Challenge and help elect lawmakers that support architects. Contribute today! (make sure to choose AIA Florida Northwest in the component drop-down box)

Not only will you be supporting FAPAC, you can help AIA Florida Northwest become the leader of the PAC at the 2022 AIA Florida Convention and Trade Show.
