    How does one register for these seminars?

    This is on Yom Kippur.

    • AIA New Jersey  On August 5, 2015 at 1:48 pm

      Yes, we regret that while planning the event the final dates for the seminar coincide with Yom Kippur, unfortunately due to many factors some beyond our control, to be able to offer this in a timely manner other dates were not an option. Some of our members have told us they would still be available during the day to participate in the seminar. We hope this is the case and apologize for any scheduling conflicts this causes.

        What an insult that you picked the eve of and the day of Yom Kippur and could not possibly find another venue or date. Please posty who is leading the seminar or I can call the DCA myself and set up a better time for memebers who cannot attend on Yom Kippur and other members who morally want to stand in solidarity with the diversity and inclusiveness the AIA likes to tout.

        Yom Kippur is the holiest day of Judaism. It is a day of abstinence, fasting and prayer. I am astonished that not one alternate day could be found to hold the IBC Seminar (at least). Some Jewish members may be able to attend the Seminar, some may be able to attend the morning session of the IBC Seminar, but this in no way excuses the organizers for the oversight of scheduling on Yom Kippur. Scheduling events on Yom Kippur had been a major problem in the past, but has lessened to a great extent, as many organizations are now aware of the sensitivity of this issue. I am stunned that AIA New Jersey has not seen fit to come into the more modern world. “Some of our members have told us they would still be available during the day to participate in the seminar.” is not an excuse nor a valid reason for pardon. I refuse to believe that no other venue is available during the remainder of the year in the entire state of New Jersey. For shame.

        watch out I commented on the choice of Yom Kippur being an insult and my post was deleted

      • Gary Chartoff  On August 6, 2015 at 9:33 pm

        It would be nice if you offer a repeat seminar on Christmas Eve and Day. I would be available…

      • Sol Tuller  On August 7, 2015 at 12:18 am

        Gary; I’ll be happy to join you. Maybe the class could start at midnight…

      • cathy benson  On August 7, 2015 at 9:40 am

        Gary,Sol and others (Jewish or not) who are upset at this please email me at [email protected]. And please leave the comments about my email out of the discussion

  • craig w. brearley  On August 5, 2015 at 2:24 pm

    Is there a plan to have this seminar again in a location closer to the south Jersey Architects?

    • AIA New Jersey  On August 6, 2015 at 6:18 pm

      At this point this 2 days of seminars are only being offered in this one location.

  • Charles T. Goulding  On August 6, 2015 at 11:49 am

    Are there ceus for this?

    • AIA New Jersey  On August 6, 2015 at 6:19 pm

      There are cue’s for this event and they will be AIA HSW, the full information will be out by next week and registration should open then also.

  • Sol Tuller  On August 6, 2015 at 8:22 pm

    Cathy; your comment was posted as of 4:08. It’s a good comment. They are not responding as they don’t know how to respond. An acceptable response would be to reschedule or schedule additional dates now. At least give them credit for posting our comments. But no credit for ignoring the importance of the situation they have created.

  • Lisa Cohen  On August 10, 2015 at 11:17 am

    I am a private practitioner and an observant Jew and I am being placed in an unfair, and quite frankly unprofessional position, of not being able to attend the only seminars being offered on this matter. I urge the AIA to take this situation seriously and to remedy it as expeditiously as possible. I am sure you will be able to find another date and time to offer an additional seminar for those not available on Yom Kippur. The one and only reason I joined the AIA is so that I can be kept up-to-date on subjects such as this and attend the seminars offered by MY professional organization. If you are not going to be inclusive I do not need to be a member.

    • Sol Tuller  On August 10, 2015 at 11:26 pm

      Lisa: Very well put.

  • AIA New Jersey  On August 11, 2015 at 1:16 pm

    There have been many comments on the scheduling of this event on Yom Kippur, alternatives are being worked on. Though the dates of this first event most likely can not be changed additional seminars are in the planning. As soon as more information is available we will get out through this blog and our website.

    • Sol Tuller  On August 11, 2015 at 8:04 pm

      Additional dates for the seminar are welcome. However this should have been done, or at least the effort to do so noted [if there was such an effort], without requiring our comments registering our anger and frustration.

  • M. W.  On September 25, 2015 at 12:30 am

    Seminar was OK, but would have been greatly improved with more emphasis on the New Jersey Edition. Some wasted time talking about sections of the IBC that are edited/deleted in NJ.
    Quigley was a very good presenter.

    Consider a near future seminar focusing on NJ UCC revisions that create the IBC NJ Edition. http://tinyurl.com/oddzo67
