Call for Submissions: Best Practices

To: Architectural Subject Matter Experts

As part of the AIA’s commitment to provide useful tools and knowledge to its members, the Institute is undertaking a major initiative to update and expand its collection of Best Practices. To that end, we are asking you, the leaders in our industry, to share your knowledge and experience by contributing a Best Practice article or suggestion for an article topic. As an industry leader, you represent an essential part of the AIA’s wealth of knowledge that we want to offer as best-practice information for the benefit of the entire profession.

We seek Best Practices on the following subject areas: business practices and trends, client relations, delivery methods, design, sustainability, emerging building technologies, financial management, integrated practice, and project management.

Best Practice articles vary from one to four pages and fit into an easy-to-read format. Completed articles are preferred; however, the AIA will work with you to develop even the barest outline of an idea. The only criteria are that submissions provide members with useful information and consist of knowledge gained from experience, immediately applicable to a task at hand.

Best Practices will be an integral part of the upcoming AIA eKnowledge Web site. The new site will increase Best Practices accessibility and likely increase readership. This is a great time to get involved and share your knowledge.

For more information: visit or contact Darcey Thomson (, 800-626-7380) to discuss an article.
