January 7, 2015
It’s hard to believe that it is 2015. With a new year comes new challenges and new beginnings. For me the new year brings the start of my year as AIA-NJ President. I am looking forward to an exciting year promoting our New Jersey architects and architecture.
As many of you hopefully know by now, at the end of 2014 AIA national launched a new awareness campaign asking the question – “What Do You See When You Look Up?” To see the first video go to www.ilookup.org . Help us spread the word to – Look Up.
Later this week, on Friday, January 9th, we will gather at the annual AIA-NJ Awards Dinner to honor this years Service and Design Award recipients. This evening will showcase some of the best of AIA New Jersey. Congratulations to all the winners!
As the year continues, many of our committees are already in the planning stages for a number of initiatives, from engaging political leaders on legislative issues that effect the architecture profession, to hosting code seminars to keep members up on the latest changes. Watch your email for newsletters and information on these topics and much more.
If there is an issue that is important to you regarding our profession, please reach out. The board members of AIA New Jersey and the local sections are here representing you…..the members. We want to hear from you!
Kimberly Bunn, AIA
2015 AIA-NJ President
