AIA New Jersey to Announce Support of NJ Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative Legislation on Friday, June 21, 2019 at East Coast Green

Gladstone, New Jersey, June 21, 2019 – This Friday, Judith Donnelly, AIA, 2019 President of the American Institute of Architects New Jersey Chapter (AIANJ) will be making a statement pledging AIANJ support to Governor Murphy’s announcement that NJ will return to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) at their East Coast Green Conference at The Willow School in Gladstone, NJ. 

Last week, at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Conference on Architecture in Las Vegas, the architecture and building community made history when they overwhelmingly voted for the “AIA Resolution for Urgent and Sustained Climate Action,” The AIA’s resolution calls for its 94,000 members worldwide to “exponentially accelerate the decarbonization of buildings, the building sector, and the built environment.” 

New Jersey exited RGGI under Governor Christie’s administration. AIA NJ took a stand against that decision. With its reinstatement by Governor Murphy, AIANJ is moved to make a statement. Please join us at East Coast Green for the news. 

AIANJ’s 9th annual East Coast Green Conference – A Climate of Change, conceived by the AIANJ Committee on the Environment chair, Jason Kliwinski, AIA, takes place this Friday, June 21. The cutting edge conference on sustainable design and construction practices is hosted at the Living Building Challenge certified Willow School in Gladstone, NJ. There’s still time to register, but space is limited. Sign up today! https://buff.ly/2HNchoz – 6 AIA LUs (2 HSW) approved, 6 GBCI/LEED Specific CEUs available. Local/Organic Breakfast, Lunch & Networking Reception included. Design for a Climate of Change.
