I hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather and the wonders of living in Western New York.
The IDA Board of Directors is working especially hard on a few key initiatives.
Website Redesign - The first is a new IDA website. Our Website Committee has analyzed the needs of the organization and is currently in the midst of weekly meetings putting together the design. We are hoping for a "reveal" within the next few months.
"Trips & Tours" - Bent's Opera House. During COVID, the IDA made great efforts to keep members engaged by having "COVID friendly" events. These events were all outdoors and involved tours of Buffalo. We have decided to continue with these kinds of events by having our new "Trips & Tours" segment, the first being Bent's Opera House in Medina. See the "Upcoming Events" section of this newsletter for details.
Please save the date for our Summer Soiree on Wednesday, August 10th. More details to follow.
The Show House Executive Committee is actively seeking referrals for the 21st Decorators' Show House.
To be considered, the home must be located in the City of Buffalo (or within a 15-mile radius) and be at least 7,000 square feet. It should have two staircases, a minimum of a two-car garage, suitable yard space, and off-street parking. The house will need to be vacant from Jan. 1 to June 1, 2023. After its transformation by area decorators and artisans, the Show House will be open to the public for approximately three weeks during April and May of 2023.
It is never too early to solicit interest in serving on the IDA Board of Directors. The slate of candidates will be presented at our November meeting. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please email email@example.com or call Karen at 716-481-1888.
Hope to see you soon at our upcoming events.
