The Young Architects Forum invited the AIA Center for Civic Leadership to participate in their April release of YAF Connection, an issue focused on exploring architects who are in or are pursuing public office through election or appointment. As many of our committee leaders have dedicated their careers to this specific path of public service, over 10 AIA CCL team members contributed their ideas to this issue, as well as past speakers and allied partners who were involved in shaping the 2015 AIA Leadership Institute. Be sure to check out the following articles, which can be read online at 14.02 YAF Connection:
