AIA New England Annual Conference October 2-4
The 2009 AIA New England Annual Conference, hosted by AIA New Hampshire, will be held October 2-4 in Portsmouth, NH.
The theme for the weekend is Portsmouth: Past and Present. We will be taking a look at both the historical features of Portsmouth and its current efforts to increase the overall sustainability of the community. Events in the works are a boat ride and lobster dinner, historical walking tours, a tour of the new LEED certified Library, tour of the Music Hall renovation, brunch at Strawbery Banke, a tour of Portwalk (Hard-hat tour), a presentation by Bert Cohen and Peter Britz on Portsmouths process to become New Hampshires first eco-municipality, and a presentation by historian Dennis Robinson. An evening reception will take place at the Discover Portsmouth Center where entries in the Awards program will be displayed. The Awards banquet and presentation will take place at the The Pearl, the only historic African-American church structure in the state of New Hampshire.
The AIANE conferences are small, but intimate. Attendees give them high scores for education and all around fun, so mark your calendars now and plan to attend!Programming will be finalized soon and posted on the AIANH and AIANE websites.
