WV ArchiPAC – INVEST

WV ArchiPAC is the bipartisan political action committee of the West Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. WV ArchiPAC serves as the single voice for the architecture profession on the state political scene. Funded by AIAWV members’ individual, voluntary contributions, WV ArchiPAC is the tool that architects use to voice the AIA’s positions to our state elected leaders on issues affecting our profession, our communities and our practices.

A strong PAC is critical, providing us with an opportunity to ensure that the candidates for the West Virginia Legislature who support our initiatives and issues get elected. Decisions affecting our profession will be made whether we are part of the conversation or not, so it is critical that we have a seat at the table to represent our membership, our issues and our concerns. Having a strong, healthy PAC gives us the opportunity to be part of that conversation.
