Chapter News...

A Message from Angela:
Professional Development Director - 2016/17

As the Professional Development Director for our chapter, I have the awesome opportunity to create programs and functions to inspire, educate and promote growth, personally and professionally of our members. My goal is to reach out to each member segment, (i.e. seasoned practitioners, emerging professional, students, our industry partners as well as the consumers of interior design), to ensure everyone has positive growth experiences and takes advantage of all that ASID has to offer, locally and nationally.
The Board works very hard to plan events that are interactive, informative and cover interesting topics, (we think). But obviously, we must be missing something because our members are not showing up!
So we need your help. Let us know what types of functions would be of interest to you.
* When would be the best time of day to hold the events, a midday Lunch and Learn or an evening of Wine and Wisdom?
* Would you enjoy round table discussions to get better acquainted with other professionals and exchange trade knowledge? Or lecture style meetings? An ID business conference?
* How about an event that partners you with a student to mentor?
* Do you need to fulfill your CEU requirement? What do you want to learn, explore or change in your business? New software or apps that increase productivity? Creating webinars or an online store?
* If you were the Professional Development Director, what would your calendar of events look like for the chapter members?
We have monthly events planned but would greatly appreciate your input to make them successful and well attended by our members. I'm asking each of you to complete a brief survey to make your voice heard, or feel free contact me at info@dezineroriginals.com with your ideas and suggestions. Or better yet, join the committee to assist in making our chapter the best in the west!

Have a great day designing,
Angela M. Britt
Professional Development Director  2016-17

The next ASID Partner Spotlight will be with The Tile Shop on February 1 at 3 p.m. EST. Join ASID as we hear from Kevin McDaniel, Lead Merchant & Director of Product Design at The Tile Shop, about why The Tile Shop has established thriving relationships with interior designers across the country. In this video and Q&A, learn what Kevin believes ASID Industry Partners need to offer interior designers to help build and run their businesses, as well as emerging consumer demands for new materials, endless sizes, and fresh patterns. 
Kevin McDaniel joined The Tile Shop in 2009 and is currently responsible for overseeing and developing The Tile Shop's product assortment. Kevin brings a mix of design and institutional knowledge to the company and is a frequent and highly regarded speaker in the global design community. 
Partner Spotlight provides a monthly 30-minute forum for designers to engage with ASID National Industry Partners, manufacturers, and experts on new trends, product launches, and more. The webinar series does not provide CEUs, but allows members to learn about new and differentiated products and tools to support specification.
