Welcome FY2022-2023 Board Members
President Elect: Cathy Thompson
I will continue to encourage interior designers to recognize the value of belonging to an organization representing the interior design profession. Through community outreach programs, my goal is to clearly define the profession to the public and inform on how we serve. I am looking to educate and inspire a new generation of designers by having programs and events at the middle and. High school levels that introduce interior design profession to perspective students
Membership Director: Matt Rowen
In the age of COVID, I'd strive to develop and maintain stronger ties amongst our membership while growing our ranks.
The value of organizations has only increased as old ways of working and networking have fallen by the wayside, but we
need to be active in using novel technologies to connect, communicate, and above all, help to promote the value of great
design in the lives of our clients and communities.
