President's Message Fall 2022
We have an exciting year planned ahead with a variety of tours, presentations, and learning opportunities! Later on this month, we will be touring the Keystone Cement Plant. In June, we will be touring Lafayette College’s new Rockwell Science Center, and in the Fall, we will be touring and seeing new architectural projects in New York City. These are just a few of the exciting tours and events that we have planned. We recently expanded our leadership with Martin Smith, NCARB as our Event Planning Chair. Martin is the Assistant Vice President of Experience + Education for NCARB and is a great resource here in our chapter! Our chapter will continue strengthening its relationships with other local organizations such as CSI Greater Lehigh Valley, Green Building United, CREW, COAA, and local colleges.
On a personal note, I have recently embarked on a new venture. Due to this extra time commitment, I have decided to step down as chapter president as of May 1st, 2022. President-Elect, Megan Henry will be moving into the President position. Megan is extremely organized, knowledgeable on the inner workings of the chapter, dedicated, and hard working. I have no doubt that Megan will be a great chapter leader!
After completing one term as president and being involved in our local leadership board since 2015, I am grateful to have served you and the members of our chapter and community over the last 6 and a half years. This experience has been an exciting journey and I encourage other members to get involved so they can help shape our chapter’s direction and provide new opportunities to our members!
On behalf of our board, we look forward to your participation and hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!
