New Steering Committee Members

Several of the current steering committee members will be stepping down over the course of the next several months as the course of their tenure comes to an end. Those members are Mimi Malayan, Hana Mori,Sarka Volejnikova, and Orit Yanai. We will miss their invaluable support, wisdom and contributions. We have happily managed to recruit two new members to the Steering Committee. We are pleased to welcome Margaret Goglia and Cynthia Wang aboard and look forward to the new collaboration.

Prior to joining the Berkeley Lab, she was Associate Director for Design and Construction Policy at the University of California Office of the President. Between 1984 and 1996, she served in a variety of design and construction leadership and management positions during a robust period of UCLA's capital program involving hospital, research, academic, housing, service, and utility building design and construction. Ms. Goglia has led all phases of major capital projects from planning and programming to commissioning and occupancy. Her early career focused on teaching and research; she served on the faculty of the Architecture Department at Cal Poly, Pomona for five years and has held numerous consulting and academic positions.

She is a member of the American Institute of Architects and the Organization of Women Architects. She has chaired both the Western Council of Construction Consumers Board of Directors and the Association for Women in Architecture Board of Directors. Margaret Goglia received her BA from the State University of New York at Buffalo and a Masters Degree from Yale University in 1975.

Cynthia Wang, a graduate of the Masters of Architecture program at the University of California, Berkeley is a Project Designer at Beverly Prior Architects in San Francisco. Her projects are within both the education and justice sectors. Previously, at Endres Ware Architects and Engineering in Berkeley, she was involved in the structural development of high-end residential and municipal projects. She received recognition as part of the project team for the San Mateo Shoreline Park Pavilions.

Beyond the workplace, Cynthia is involved in community projects such as instructing inner-city youths in the areas of art, architecture and construction, volunteers regularly with Habitat for Humanity, and has teamed with artists in the permanent installation of public art.
