AIA Michigan Architects in Public Service - “Citizen Architects"
The Government Affairs Committee and AIA Michigan would like to recognize all members who have engaged in public service in our communities.  We also would like to publicly thank and recognize our “Citizen Architects,” who have committed their time and expertise to public service. Our goal by providing this list will hopefully inspire and encourage other members to consider public service and help design our communities.
