Summit Overview

Jane Rohde, CHID, ACHA, AIA, FIIDA, LEED AP BD+C, Green Globes CIEB Assessor‍‍‍ Conference Chair


JSR Associates, Inc.

Jane Rohde champions strategically educating the architecture and design community to support innovative and creative solutions to local, regional, and global issues. Jane has provided presentations and education to peers, healthcare providers, sustainability leaders, and product manufacturers since the inception of her future focused practice – to improve the physical environment and the design of community to engage all users in the experience of living.  

Jane has been involved as the conference chair for the Design Connections (DC) conference since its inception. This initiative is a hosted buyer model produced by nGage Events and Interiors & Sources Magazine. Similarly, the Smart Building Envelope conference Powered by R+T will also use this successful model. The success of this type of model is reflected in the responses of attendees, because of the one-on-one meetings with manufacturers and case studies/research presented in the board rooms by manufacturers. The format provides attendees and manufacturers an opportunity to discuss innovative ideas to meet emerging trends and knowledgeable speakers share information with attendees in educational sessions. An advisory council approach is used to foster the development of a meaningful educational and networking event.
