Under the leadership of Jeffrey Rosenblum, AIA, the task force met on January 7, 2009 to begin the process of assessing the needs of this member segment. The goal is to determine what the AIA should be doing to better serve the special needs of small firms, loosely defined as having 20 or fewer employees. Some initiatives already under discussion include providing templates for HR, marketing plans, Web site feeds, and newsletters. A mid-term goal is to develop two pilot programs focused on small firms that can test whatever concepts are identified in the current strategic assessment.
