Our mission is to give voice to the architects, engineers and other professionals working with the New York City Department of Buildings and other city agencies. We offer our members an expanding professional network that promotes their rights and advocates on issues in the building industry. We seek solutions to regulatory impediments by improving communication and cooperation among our members and city, state, and federal agencies and officials.
Through legislation, lobbying, education and, if necessary, litigation, we are committed to upholding clear, transparent procedures and the preservation of reasonable ethical and professional norms that reflect the beauty and grandeur of our great city. We will seek innovative solutions to interpreting contradictory codes and zoning regulations and communicating in ways that favor consensus over conflict.
