On a rainy night in June, a lively group – comprised of SMPS members and non-members; marketers, architects, and engineers – mingled over specialty brews at the Harvest Moon in New Brunswick. New Jersey Affiliate committee members, Shannon Koop of MFS Consulting Engineers, Chris Pedecine of D&B Engineering, and Jeff Taub of VHB anchored the gathering, which was attended by firms including First Environment, KS Engineers, and DIGroup Architecture. After chatting about family, summer plans, deadlines, and trips down the shore, the conversation turned to the Affiliate’s calendar for the upcoming year.

The first program, covering healthcare trends, will be held on Thursday, November 12th and will once again be hosted in the scenic Daikin Solutions Plaza in Jersey City. A second program, which will be planned in collaboration with the SMPS Philadelphia Chapter, will be held next April in Central or South Jersey. In addition to these educational programs, the Affiliate anticipates hosting four to six networking events throughout the state. The New Jersey Affiliate committee is always looking for new members to serve as the leadership “ambassadors” of the SMPS-NY Chapter in ensuring that New Jersey members, and prospective members, are engaged with networking opportunities and meaningful programs.
