“ACECNJ is the leading organization for the consulting engineering industry,” said Ramiza. “I’m grateful that I will have the opportunity to find new ways that LAN, and other firms, can continue to strengthen our industry.”
For more than 30 years, LAN has been a member of ACECNJ, with multiple staff, including Steven, as active committee members.

He has used this platform to voice new ideas and provide a fresh perspective on opportunities within the industry. His voice and his allegiance to ACECNJ have been recognized, and the transition to the Executive Committee seemed like a natural next step for the organization. Prior to that, Steven served on the ACECNJ Environment Committee.
