Kansas City

The mission of the Kansas City chapter of IDSA is to serve the networking, career development and professional development needs of industrial designers in the area. Additionally, the chapter supports the IDSA student chapters at colleges and universities programs in industrial designs and related fields which offer undergraduate and/or graduate degrees.

New chair, Dan Hamilton, IDSA, picks up the reins from his predecessors, Jessica Fertig and Francis Fave. Dan welcomes any information that would benefit the community, especially ideas for events and activities. Dan may be reached by email at Chair.IDSAKC@gmail.com.
