Fall Workshop

The 2004 Fall Workshop, the "AIA Wisconsin Leadership Institute," received very high marks. From the presentations by Robert Greenstreet, Richard Swett and Richard Ayres to the small group sessions on leadership issues, participants indicated it was a timely and valuable program. Several members even said it was the best Fall Workshop they had attended. Kudos to Kent Calloway, AIA, and this year's Fall Workshop planning committee! (11/12/04)

AIA "Report Card" Survey

Last summer, AIA Wisconsin members were asked to participate in an AIA "Report Card" survey. About 11% of you took us up on the offer to rank various local, state and national programs and to grade the AIA's performance in terms of meeting your expectations. The results from the survey generated a lot of discussion at this year's long-range planning retreat. Continuing education programs, public awareness and the integrity of the profession remain priority items. For the most part, members indicated that the AIA is meeting their expectations. (11/12/04)

Architectural Intern

According to a state administrative rule, A-E 3.03(5), that became effective on June 1, 2003 , individuals acquiring supervised experience in architectural work to become licensed as an architect in Wisconsin may now use the title "architectural intern." Firms and interns are encouraged to make sure that titles used on business cards and in other marketing materials comply with state statutes and related administrative rules. Only registered architects may use the title "architect." Titles for interns other than "architectural intern" that include "architect" or "architectural," such as "intern architect" or architectural technician," are prohibited by state law. (11/12/04)

QBS Wisconsin

Encourage public officials to visit the QBS Wisconsin website at and download the "Wisconsin QBS Manual" that provides a step-by-step guide for establishing a structured and objective process for selecting architects and engineers. If you see peculiar RFPs, you may want to tell these public owners about QBS Wisconsin, a public service offered by AIA Wisconsin and ACEC of Wisconsin. (11/12/04)

It provides access to breaking news and information on current federal and state issues. The primary goal of this site is to make it easier for you to become involved with the legislative process by providing you with the resources to contact your elected representatives.
