Candidate Statement
I am firmly committed to advancing the mission of ASID to students and existing professionals who are not members. By serving on the TCU advisory board for interior design, I will be in regular contact with students and faculty and have been for a few years. One of my goals is to help re-energize the Fort Worth Design Community by recruiting new members and providing programs that are of interest to designers and providing CEUs to help designers meet their goals for ASID membership. I also want to recruit speakers from ASID to present the many benefits of membership and to further bolster members’ commitment to ASID.
