"Joining this committee is one of the best things I've ever done in my life. Such an amazing group of talented people, always willing to pitch in and give it their absolute all, and well beyond. Ya'll came into my life when it was imploding, appreciating me for my purple sparkles, and geeky spreadsheets, and I couldn't be more proud to be a part of this group. Last night felt like such an enormous success." So much energy and excitement in the room. I'm proud of us!" - Jen Imbaro, Sasaki

"So excited to be a part of a group willing to do everything it takes and beyond to create community in our industry. This committee is equal parts give and receive and I’m grateful for the trust and support I get to assist in our common goal."  - Lyndsey Almon, FCi Furniture Consultants
