How scary is this?

Checked out the AIA's Twitter page this morning and found that they are on furlough this week.

Scary stuff.

Given that AIA exists on the strength of its members, this means that some combination of membership fees, educational programming, or product sales are insufficient to keep the lights on and the doors open this week.

Apparently, the AIA's Architectural Billings Index is not just a measure of how well architecture firms are doing. It's also a function of how well the AIA itself is doing.

How about you? Has your firm taken any cost-cutting measures this summer to keep things operating as we head into the fall?

Let us know!
