The goal of AIA Northern Nevada’s efforts, as advocates of the profession, is to serve as a significant voice in our communities and advocate for better policy on the local level.  A small group of members, known as the “Advocacy Committee,” meets regularly to strategize where and how we can best make an impact. 

In recent years, the committee has focused on influencing the Reimagine Reno process as the principles of the new master plan are codified into the new development code.  The Committee strives to help provide for an alternative path to some of the prescriptive design requirements in the code and find ways to support the City's sustainability and housing affordability efforts.

Our renewed efforts could always use a boost from the membership.  We miss important opportunities every day to influence local policy.  If there is an item in front of any of our local councils or planning commissions that you care about, or would like to bring to the attention of the AIANN community, please email
