On behalf of the IIDA New England Board of Directors, I want to sincerely thank our 2013 Chapter Partners for their support of our organization and all that we are trying to do for our members! Your financial contribution and support of our goals has enabled us to continue to strengthen the organization and provide value for our members. Over the past few years the Board and program committees have worked hard to gain the financial stability that is required to not only maintain quality programs, but to continually improve and change in order to remain relevant to all members, whether they are professional, associate, industry, affiliated, educators or students.
With your generous support this past year, we have provided educational programs and Forum tours at no cost to members. We now offer our NCIDQ preparatory program at no charge to those that have maintained their associate membership for two years. This fall, we officially launched an Education Fund that will provide financial benefits to students pursuing interior design degrees throughout New England and to the advancement of the professional development of NE IIDA members. Our latest initiative is to start an Emerging Leaders program that will focus on the rising stars from our NE design firms and afford them opportunities to learn and excel with business training often not available through their employers.
With the launch of our 2014 Sponsorship campaign, we are continuing to offer what we feel are the kinds of benefits and return on investment that are important to the companies that partner with us. In addition to a Chapter Partner appreciation dinner and Principals Round Table dinner, we are excited to offer a number of exclusive events to chapter partners and professional members that allow for meaningful small group networking opportunities. We will also be launching a brand new website in January with lots of publicity and attention, so having your company name featured will be visible to a greater number of people than previously.
I would like to thank Andrea Coan, our Director of Industry & Sponsorship, who has put together a great package for your review once again this year. Andrea can be reached at Andrea_Coan@knoll.com should you have questions or wish to meet to discuss opportunities that best fit your company’s needs. I am also available and happy to meet with you and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are very excited about the upcoming 2014 year with the great programs and events we have planned, and would love for you to join us as a Chapter Partner to help meet our goal to add value to every member of our design community!
Deb Anderstrom, President, IIDA NE
