This January, the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) appointed Marc B. Sternick, AIA, LEED AP to its 13-member board of directors. Since 2003, the vice president and senior architect at Dietz & Company Architects has been helping organize the annual NESEA conferences such as the upcoming Building Energy Conference at Boston’s Seaport World Trade Center in March. At this event, Sternick will also act as conference chair and present a session on high performance public housing.
“For years I have looked to NESEA to raise the level of my practice and increase the depth of my sustainability knowledge. It is now time for me to step up and take a more active role in helping to steer this important organization,” says Sternick of his new appointment. He adds, “NESEA has become “the place to go” for all building professionals in the Northeast for up-to-date, state-of-the-art information on high-performance building. NESEA is becoming the focal point for information sharing and collaboration among professionals in the design and construction fields. I see many opportunities to help grow NESEA’s reputation, member base and conference attendance – and I look forward to making that happen.”
At Dietz & Company Architects, Sternick oversees the firm’s multifamily housing and green building efforts. He has spent more than 25 years assessing, designing and constructing high performance, affordable housing. “I have been committed to changing the face and reputation of affordable housing to one that is beautiful, healthy, energy-efficient and sustainable,” says Sternick.
