For position of South District VP

Statement of Candidacy

I am excited to announce my candidacy for Southern District Vice Chair for the 2015 IDSA elections. I believe IDSA has a tremendous future ahead of it, led by the values and connections of our members. This platform will allow for greater energy to be placed on evaluating the current benefits of an IDSA membership as it relates to our district network; my goal is to ensure that each member can clearly identify the value they receive from their involvement in our organization. 

I have been a member of the association for 12 years, and have held a leadership position for eight years. My vested interest in IDSA has provided great insight in how the organization may flex to recruit a new generation of designers and retain our experienced members. I look forward to collaborating with the IDSA national team to to provide unparalleled opportunity for professional development and member fellowship at the annual District Design Conferences.
