Letter from the Chapter President

Dear ASID Members;
I'm so excited to be your ASID California Central / Nevada Chapter President for the 2016/17 fiscal year.  My focus, as your president, is to grow participation at Chapter events.  We have several great events planned throughout the coming year, so don't miss out on the opportunity to participate as a practitioner, industry partner, or sponsor. 
Being part of a professional organization is much more than networking; it's a way to give back to the design community, and in return surround yourself with a group of people that share common goals. Great things happen when we work together toward a common good, and it's thrilling to be part of ASID.
I challenge you to show up, and see with your own eyes what ASID can do for you and your business. I hope to engage with as many of you as possible in the coming year. We'd love to see you at our Industry Partner Market Tour and ANDYZ Kick off event in Las Vegas in January. Join us as one of the featured designers at our Date with a Designer Day Event, in Sacramento in February; plus, the ANDYZ Awards will begin accepting entries in April. I hope many of you are already searching your portfolios for those award winning spaces. We'd love for you to be able to 
add "Award Winning" to your bio, and be a part of the ANDYZ Celebration at Summer Market. 
Let's work together to make this next year a successful year. I look forward to seeing each of your smiling faces at our events!
