Associate/Intern Committee Meeting

To All AIA West Jersey Associates & Interns:
This coming Saturday, February 5, 2011, we are having our first monthly Associate/Intern Committee Meeting of the year at the Cherry Hill Library from 9:30am to 12 noon. The focus of this meeting is on IDP & you.  The meeting will include a presentation by Nicole De Candia, LEEDap, Associate AIA, AIA-NJ IDP Coordinator 2011-2014.  Nicole will be discussing all of the recent changes to IDP & the IDP Process with an added focus on “supplementary education units,” which in essence are hours one can earn while unemployed.  This meeting is very informal and we are expecting to have a lot of group discussion, so please take the time before Saturday morning to organize and prepare your thoughts/questions for Nicole.  Also, feel free to bring any of your personal IDP information to the meeting because Nicole will be answering any questions and/or specific topics that you may have regarding the latest version of IDP & the IDP process.
We would like to get a head count prior to Saturday morning so please contact either Bob O’Reilly, AIA or Jim Del Grosso, AIA, before the end of the day Friday, February 4, 2011, if you will be in attendance.
Thank you and we will see all of you this Saturday morning!
