  1. Congrats to the new NJ officers for 2019!
    Looking to form a committee for Disaster Preparedness for Architects in Education of the Public.
    Also the issue of local chapter AIA members should be eligible to vote in AIA national elections. All members are Architects and should have voting rights to National. How do we address this change?



Architects are skilled professionals who listen to you, interpret your wishes, help realize your building dreams, and add value at every stage of a project.
