A Capacity Event, Another Year for the Recordbooks
The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) concluded their national conference, UNPLUGGED, in Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 26-30, 2022, honoring the achievements of its members, learning from industry peers and departing with a clear commitment and renewed energy to support the diversification of the architecture profession. More than 1,300 NOMA members, allies and students attended the sold-out, in-person conference, the first since 2019.
“We gathered as experts in our field to collaborate on the opportunities that advance NOMA’s mission to increase the diversification of Blacks and all minorities in the design and architecture profession,” said Jason Pugh, NOMA, AIA, AICP, LEED AP, NOMA 2021-2022 President and Gensler Principal Architect and Certified Urban Planner. “We were motivated by the keynotes and session speakers who provided their diverse perspective, creating new conversations to drive the change we want to see, but more than that, the conference gave many of us time to ‘unplug’ from the daily distractions to have a sense of belonging, recognize the many achievements of our members and reconnect as a NOMA family to focus on the future.”
