Des Moines, IA (February 10, 2014) –The American Institute of Architects,
Iowa Chapter (AIA Iowa) will visit the Iowa State Capitol for Design
Professionals Day on the Hill Monday, February 10th. Attendees will meet with state legislators to

principles to enhance Iowa’s vitality and viability. Issues of interest for the

Delivery, and Statute of Repose.
"Our goal is to connect with state legislators to show the
importance of the architecture profession and the role that architects play in
our communities,” said Executive Director of AIA Iowa, Jessica Reinert, CAE,

generations. Livable communities, sustainability and quality design is vitally
