After four years, NEA Design Director Jeff Speck returns to private practice as a city planner. Chairman Gioia lauded Speck as "a creative visionary and a pragmatic entrepreneur. We wish him great success -- and don't doubt he'll achieve it." Speck oversaw the successful creation of the NEA's Governors' Institute on Regional Design -- modeled on the agency's 20-year-old Mayors' Institute on City Design -- to aid governors with design issues.
