Michael Firsich, Director of Signature Events 

4L. How many years have you served on the IIDA Indiana Board? MF Just one! But I will be serving one more year for a total of two years.

4L. What are your main responsibilities on the board and how long is your term as Director of Signature Events? MF. I am responsible for the commitment and coordination of our Chapter's two signature events - winter and summer.

4L. Usually I ask people how long they have been with their employer, how would you like to explain your new roll?  MF. Here's my shameless plug... Last November, I combined my passion of architectural photography with my sales, marketing, and leadership skills, in this industry, to start my own business -  Michael Firsich Architectural + Interior Photography.  I specialize in architectural photography, content marketing strategy, and website development as a platform to attract, engage, convert, and retain profitable business. 

4L. Three words to Describe IIDA? MF.  Knowledge, Promotion & Networking
4L. What is the greatest part about IIDA? MF. For me, the best part about IIDA Indiana Chapter is getting to know everyone in our industry that deeply cares about the interior design profession. I love the connections I've made with others in our industry during my involvement as a member and a volunteer.  Interior designers help make places in Indiana more attractive, productive, healthier and safer one project at a time!
