Nori Jabba, CNU-A  


President | BN Jabba Consulting
Redwood City, Californina

Member Since: 2009



Q. How did you prepare for the CNU-A Exam?  

A.  I took the on-line course through University of Miami.  

Q. Why did you sign up for CNU-A?   


A.  I wanted to be as knowledgeable about new urbanism as possible.   

Q. How has CNU-A personally benefited you?
A.  It gives me added credibility with clients and potential clients and it helps spread the word about CNU in general because most people are not familiar with it and learn about CNU in the process of asking me about CNU-A.  

Q. How did you meet your continuing education requirement this year? 
A.  I attended our annual board retreat and meeting for our Chapter as well as regional events.  I try to make it to the annual CNU Congress every year as well.  As a board member, and former Chair of the California Chapter one of our key strategies is to to provide more CNU-A opportunities to our members.


Q. Share a fun fact about yourself.

I used to work next door to Norman Foster's office in London. Also, as a board member of the CNU Northern California Chapter since 2011, Nori led the effort to merge Northern and Southern California members to become a full state Chapter.
