NOMA: 43rd Annual International Conference & Expo
The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) is pleased to announce the 43rd Annual International Conference & Exposition, taking place October 15-17, 2015 at the Sheraton New Orleans in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana. The Conference theme this year is RISE: Social Justice by Design. While the design profession has seen a shift towards a more socially-conscious practice in recent years, NOMA has always been an organization centered around community engagement and social justice through the design process. With that in mind, this year, we are challenging our members and partners to rise in support of diversity in the profession and design justice in our communities.

Including Pre-Fabricated Railings in Residential & Commercial Design
This course includes a discussion on the use of railings as a key element in commercial & residential design. In this course the design professional will gain an understanding of the differences between custom made railings fabricated in the traditional “onsite” method and custom-made railings which are fabricated “off-site” and are then shipped to the job site ready-to-be-installed.The annual conference is designed to be heavily scheduled with information from keynote speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and panelists to encourage dialogue among students and professionals. In addition to design competitions for students and professionals, historical tours are part of the agenda.
