Chris Livaudais, IDSA Statement of Candidacy

I am excited to announce my candidacy for West District Chapter Representative for the 2017-19 term. I believe IDSA has a tremendous future ahead—led by the values and connections of our members. This platform will allow me to focus my energy on working with chapter leaders in the West District. I want to ensure they have the tools and support needed to enrich their local design communities through events, outreach and advocacy.  

I have been a member of the association for more than 15 years, and most recently sat on the Board of Directors as South District VP. Concurrent with this, I also chaired two District Design Conferences which drew large audiences of students and professionals alike. My history with IDSA provides me with great insight into how the Society may best position itself to remain relevant to new generations of designers while retaining experienced members. I look forward to collaborating with IDSA national and local teams to provide unparalleled opportunity for professional development and community engagement as the next West District Chapter Representative.
