Location: Center for Architecture, 06.13.12
Organizer: AIANY

The AIA New York Chapter membership gathers each June to elect the Board of Directors and members to selected committees as well as to conduct chapter business and honor those who contribute to the built environment of New York. In a time when organizations are fleeting, it’s incredible to know that this was our Chapter’s 145th Annual Meeting.

In the business portion of the meeting, AIANY membership elected the 2013 Board of Directors and members to selected committees. Jill N. Lerner, FAIA, Principal at Kohn Pedersen Fox (KFP), was elected 2013 president. With more than 30 years of design and management experience, Lerner has led the design of numerous award-winning academic and institutional research facilities projects for public and private clients throughout the United States.
