If you are one of our Mid-America Chapter members, we would like to thank you for your continued membership. We hope that you are taking advantage of all the professional benefits that IIDA offers.
VP of City Center
The VP acts as a liaison to the Mid-America Board. They coordinate monthly meetings for the Wichita City Center, whether that is virtually or in person. Wichita City Center does not require participants to be based in Wichita. Several committee members live/work outside of Wichita and are welcome to join meetings whichever way suits their situation.
This role works closely with VP to monitor budgets and profit and loss statements. They are responsible for submitting receipts for the City center to the Mid-America Board.
SIGNATURE Events Committee
spenser lehmann & Darin Affeldt
The signature events team is in charge of planning and executing the Spring and Fall Wichita City Center events. These functions are open to IIDA members and non-members alike and usually include many participants traveling in from other cities. These events change every couple of years, but recently have included Night at the Races and Bingo Night.
Continuing Education & tours Committee
Jessica Voss, elise gorecki & Molly Loveland
This team is tasked with coordinating monthly CEU and tours. They work closely with VP of Professional Development on the Mid-America Board to provide continuity across the chapter. CEUs and tours rotate between taking place in Kansas City and Wichita. Most, if not all, CEUs are available virtually now. Don’t forget to ask about NCIDQ Study Sessions!
The membership role coordinates directly with the VP of Membership, working to build and maintain membership for the chapter. They host membership events like headshot photos every couple of years, Designer Dugout at a Wichita Wind Surge Baseball game, and member happy hours or coffees. They also meet one on one with firms and firm leaders promoting membership.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH Committee
Ginger Coyle & Mason Bryant
The community outreach team organizes two networking events for the Wichita Design Community and fundraises for a local organization. These include the Garden Party in June and the popular Tacky Sweater Crawl in December.
The marketing role acts as a liaison between the Wichita City Center and VP of Communications on the Mid-America Board. They manage the Ticketleap for the city center and send out monthly e-blasts for upcoming Wichita events to keep the local community up to date on Wichita specific events. They’ll send photos of events to the VP of Communications so they’ll be posted on Mid-America’s social media and website. Take a look at the past event galleries!
