Members of AIA New Jersey, including AIA-NJ President Stacey Ruhle Kliesch, attended a fundraiser for the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA). In attendance was Governor Haley Barbour of Mississippi, Chairman of the RGA as well as Gubernatorial Candidate Chris Christie. The event was another in a long list of events funded by APAC. The RGA has committed $2 million dollars to this years NJ Governor’s race through their 527 campaign committee. Governor Barbour was in town at the home of Roger and Laura Bodman raising money for this activity. APAC was in attendance at this intimate gathering and had an opportunity to educate the candidate on issues important to licensed NJ Architects and AIA-NJ.

      Thank you for your question, at this event, like any attended by your representatives from both AIA-NJ and APAC, the opportunity to have a face to face conversations about the Policies of AIA-NJ in invaluable. We always take this opportunity to update elected officials or candidates about the official policy position of AIA-NJ established by the Board. They include green building initiatives, unlicensed practice, licensing issues as they relate to the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the state, etc. Our policies can be found on our website.

      For more information or to discuss the AIA-NJ position we encourage our members to contact our Executive Director Joseph Simonetta at 609-393-5690.
