The New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects has installed Verity L. Frizzell as its president-elect, the organization announced.
Frizzell, principal of Point Pleasant-based Feltz & Frizzell Architects, assumes the post after serving in several leadership roles in AIA-NJ, including first vice president, second vice president and secretary. She has also served as president of AIA-NJ’s Jersey Shore local section.
In a news release, the professional organization’s New Jersey chapter said Frizzell was installed during its annual awards gala on Jan. 14 at the Sheraton in Mahwah. At the same event, AIA-NJ installed Ben Lee of NK Architects as its chapter president for 2017.
“I am eager to expand my leadership role with AIA-NJ as president elect,” Frizzell said in a prepared statement. “As architects, we strive to create sustainable, innovative projects that impact our built environment and community in a positive way.
“This organization allows us to build awareness of the critical role that architects play in creating safe and compelling places to live, work and play for all of the state’s residents.”
With more than 20 years of experience in architecture, the Bay Head resident specializes in green building, residential additions, alterations and new construction, the news release said. She is a licensed architect in New Jersey and Texas and is also active with AIA nationally, having served as a member of the AIA Culture Collective, the AIA Strategic Planning Task Force and the AIA National Equity in Architecture Commission.
Frizzell is currently a member of the AIA Public Outreach Committee, the news release said.
She received a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Texas at Austin and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
