message from the president
As I begin my term as the IIDA Mid-America President, I am humbled to be enveloped and embraced by the design communities in Kansas City and Wichita. Because of the incredible efforts and passion of our members and leadership, IIDA Mid-America was recognized by Headquarters as one of four Chapters to win a Best Thing Ever (BTE) Award for our programming and administrative efforts in 2020. Thank you to everyone that helped make these achievements possible!
I have spent the past year as President Elect learning, growing and soaking up the knowledge that those before me were so kind to share. I am honored to follow in their footsteps as they led this chapter with both passion and commitment to creating invaluable programming that continues to elevate the design profession. They have paved the way for our Chapter to continue providing such great service through exciting initiatives in the next year.
Our focus for 2020-2021 is to continue to tailor our content and programming to meet and exceed the needs of our members in an ever changing world. From professional development to networking, we look forward to providing meaningful opportunities for our members to build the skills and connections they need to succeed in their professional lives. We continue to do this by innovating and improving our annual Chapter programs, such as the Leading the Way mentorship program, the Brand U student workshop, and our City Center events. As always, we look forward to providing new opportunities and content to our professional and student members and hope IIDA continues to be an invaluable resource for growth and connection over the coming year.
Thank you to our sponsors, industry partners, volunteers and every single one of our members. Without your support, none of these exciting events and initiatives would be possible. IIDA continues to spark my passion and dedication to our industry, both personally and professionally, and I look forward to helping provide a service that does the same for each of you. Please reach out to any of our amazing Board members for more information on how to get involved – we look forward to seeing you at our next event!
