The American Institute of Architects (AIA), founded in 1857, is a professional organization of architects offering education, advocacy, and public outreach to support the architecture profession. With nearly 300 state and local chapters, the AIA serves as the voice of the architecture profession and the resource for members in service to society. The AIA Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is a specialized committee within the AIA whose mission is “to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally”. HRC represents the work of historical architects within the profession through meetings, conferences, and publications targeted to members, professional organizations, and the public.
