Dear IIDA Members and the Interior Design Community:
Welp, it's about four more days until my rule as your overlord ends. It's been awesome.
I want to thank all of our hard-working board and committee members. It's just been amazing to witness their passion and enthusiasm as we all drive the progress of our commercial interior design association.
I can't stress enough how important IIDA is to the interior design community.
I truly believe that we are the catalyst to elevate our profession and tell the public what we do in our day in, day out.
IIDA is equipped to confront all elements of our industry that make us who we are. Through student involvement, advocacy efforts, continuing education, and events where we can celebrate our talents while socializing and building community, IIDA is the established institution that can carry us all.
Serving on this board has supported me in not only my professional, but also my personal life.The truest form of democracy is volunteering, and if you want to change something, volunteer and be a part of that change. After joining IIDA, I caught the 'board bug', where my decisions would soon influence the development of my neighborhood and my city.
In parting, I just want to say, 'Engage and Belong' We know we work in the best industry EVER, and the best resources to flourish are right in front of us.
