The AIA's goal is to establish new partnerships with policymakers and industry partners that will lead to meaningful action addressing the built environment's impact on climate change.

Bergmeyer's President, Mike Davis, is one of four delegates selected to attend the summit in Glasgow, alongside AIA 2021 President Peter Exley, FAIA; Julie Hiromoto, FAIA, COTE 2020 Advisory Group Chair; COTE Advisory Group Chair Julie Hiromoto (FAIA); and Dr. Mark Breeze, AIA, AIA UK Sustainability Chair. Mike recently shared some thoughts about the COP26 in Archinect's article, Business as Usual or Build Back Better? Architectural Leaders Share Their Thoughts on This Weekend's COP26 Opening.

"We will look for opportunities to reinforce our government advocacy message that both the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework and the Build Back Better reconciliation bill must include funding to make America's buildings more resilient, more energy-efficient, and less dependent on fossil fuels."

An architect and a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Mike is deeply involved in the AIA’s government advocacy work and has been a key influencer in the AIA’s shift to making the fight against climate change its primary focus.
