Architecture Week and the celebration of the AIA 150th Anniversary is done, the National Convention is done, the summer is beginning to creep in to New York… what is left to anticipate for 2007? The AIA New York State Convention which will be held here in New York City from October 4-6, 2007. “The Past as Prologue” is the theme, the Grand Hyatt Hotel is the venue. We hope you will all attend the CES programming, product showcase, Host Chapter Party, walking tours, and more. For more information visit the AIANYS website. Sponsorship and product showcase opportunities are still available.

Reminder if you have not yet sent a renewal payment for 2007 membership your benefits have been suspended. The AIA offers a myriad of traditional benefits which can be reviewed here. In addition, the chapter has been working to extend member benefits and has recently formed alliances with the Guggenheim Museum and Kaplan AEC for discounts to our members. Please contact Suzanne Mecs, or 212-358-6115 as soon as possible to renew and restore your membership.
