AIA-NJ COTE has been busy this year already and we have many more things planned. The first quarter of the year we ran 6 LEED study groups across the State (thanks to our volunteer facilitators and donated space, we were able to do so at an exceptionnally reduced cost). These 5 day, 2 hour workshops were attended by over 100 members with many reporting back successfully passing the exam, including our own AIA-NJ President (congrats Stacey).
Upcoming activities include:
1. Green Residential and High Performance Design Workshop- July 14th & 15th at Willow School in Gladstone NJ, a LEED Platinum facility on conjunction with USGBC-NJ and Rutgers Bloustein School. 15 sustainable product/system vendors, 2 days of educational workshops providing HSW/SD CEU’s and a great building tour(s) of a LEED Platinum facility. Space is still available for speakers, vendors, and sponsorship. Please reach out to your sustainable contacts in the industry and have them contact us if interested at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. East Coast Green- ‘Back to School’ to meet the Architecture 2030 Goals. Planned for September 2010 to be a 2 day large event in either Atlantic City or Liberty State Park. Ed Mazria, founder of Architecture 2030, has agreed to be a keynote speaker. We need volunteers to organize lecture tracks, vendors, and sponsors. Get involved!
