I have supported the Northwest Chapter as an advisor to the Board for many years and have served as Board Chair for the last three.
After holding the West District Chapter Representative role in an interim capacity, for the last several months, I see an opportunity to promote and encourage awareness of the design community and build the IDSA membership in the entire West District. This means growth in numbers, but just as importantly, in the quality of events and opportunities the organization provides.
I would like to work on connecting the chapters for more shared events, cross-pollination of ideas, and general comradery among both the leadership and the chapter members. Creating a community that has clear value to its members is a challenge that I feel the whole organization is currently very focused on, and that I can help to bring to the West District.
