2019 Tri-States Conference Features Ten AIA NJ Members Over Four Day Program
AIA New Jersey recently co chaired the 2019 AIA Tri-States Conference, Breaking Ground!, with AIA Pennsylvania and AIA New York. The four day event featured tours of Albany, specialty certification training, continuing education seminars, keynote presentations, leadership events, social opportunities, a professional Expo, Design Awards celebration and chapter board meetings. My sense from the architects I spoke with, they all enjoyed the programs.
AIA NJ Tri-States Chair, Seth Leeb, AIA, relayed that the attendees were providing great feedback on everything they attended.
Event sites and tours featured the New York State Museum, RPI Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies, the New York State Capitol, the Five Rivers Environmental Center, the New York State Education Department Building, the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall and The Egg.

According to AIA NJ President, Judy Donnelly, AIA, “Many said that ‘This was the best Tri-States event so far’ and I have to agree. It was Inspirational, Educational, and a Networking Event that can be carried into our practices, used towards our AIA missions, and so much more, for years to come! It was an event that was ‘Not to be Missed!'”
