Allied Member & Mini Expo Event Recap

On Thursday March 21st the AIA West Jersey held their annual Mini Expo & Allied Member event at the Camden County Boathouse.  Our 2019 Allied Members: Arc Document Solutions, Garland Industries Inc., Pella Windows & Doors, Marvin Window & Doors, Hi-Fi Sales Co., Polaris Consulting Engineers and Rulon International  were in attendance handing out information on their products/companies and conversing with the West Jersey members about how they can assist with current or upcoming projects.  As the West Jersey members entered they were given a bingo card with Allied Members names and conversation topics to mark off as they networked.  A completed bingo card gave members the opportunity in the drawing for some prizes. 

After networking with our Allied members we had CEU presentations from Bob Longo, the Chair of the Codes and Standards Committee with AIA NJ, on his experience and gained knowledge on the NJ digital sealing requirements; followed by a presentation from Rob Austin, Code Specialist from the NJ DCA, on the expected adoption of the 2018 I-Codes by New Jersey before the end of the year. Bob informed us that a digital seal is for digital transmittal only and not printing, that a digital seal must be third party verified to meet the standards and that DCA is currently the only entity in the state able to and requiring digital sealing.  Rob went over the revisions that we can expect from the 2015 to 2018 codes and explained the code adoption process and timeline for the state of New Jersey.
After “The Bob and Rob Show”, as they termed themselves, completed their presentation we had a little more time networking with our Allied members to try to complete our Bingo cards before handing out some fun prizes and wrapping up for the night.
