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.

WOMEN IN ARCHITECTURE PODCAST DISCUSSION
Join AIA Florida Northwest for a meet-up to discuss the third episode of the New Angle: Voice podcast by the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, about the work of Helen Liu Fong. A Chinese-American architect based in Los Angeles, Fong was a pioneer of the city’s “Googie” style of architecture. She designed many of the city’s iconic mid-century interiors during her career with the firm Armet and Davis. You can read more about her here.
