Hurricane Sandy was forecast to be one of the worst on record for New Jersey. Hurricane Sandy came and now it is time for the next step - the clean up and rebuilding.
AIA New Jersey stands ready to help it's members and all of New Jersey in this effort. We are already working on local and national levels to assist in this process.
How Can You Help
- AIA-NJ is looking for ideas from YOU -
During the month of January, 2013, an AIA-NJ task force has been formed and has been exploring options to best help New Jersey post Hurricane Sandy. At the beginning of the year, the American Institute of Architects made a contribution of $37,500 to AIA-NJ to help with Sandy Recovery efforts . The task force was established to develop programs to distribute the funds. . We are looking for suggestions from YOU – our membership – on ways to do this. Any ideas or suggestions on how the money could be used to help bring our local communities closer to pre-Sandy times.
Got an idea go to the original article and post a comment, or forward them via email to AIA-NJ President Jack Purvis at firstname.lastname@example.org subject line: Sandy Relief Program .
- If you are trained to provide Disaster Response Services, please contact us and make sure your name is on our list as we receive calls from those in need. AIA-NJ held a day long training session in December 2012 that over 100 NJ architects participated in to get the crucial disaster response training that is so in need after an event like this. Additional training sessions will be held in the future, help us be prepared for next time, where ever it may be.
Interested in a future training email email@example.com to have your name put on a waiting list.
- If you are not trained, then please make a charitable donation to our partners at Architecture for Humanity or the Red Cross
- THANK YOU to all AIA-NJ members and the NJ community who called or emailed immediately after the storm to offer office space, supplies and much needed support to our fellow NJ architects who might have been displaced in the aftermath of Sandy.
