The AIA New York Chapter membership gathers each June to elect the Board of Directors and members of select committees, as well as to conduct chapter business and honor those who contribute to New York’s built environment. In a time when organizations are fleeting, it’s incredible to know that this was our Chapter’s 146th Annual Meeting.

Principal of Lance Jay Brown Architecture + Urban Design, he is also a Distinguished Professor in the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of New York. Tomas J. Rossant, AIA, of Ennead Architects, was elected First Vice President / 2015 President-Elect.
