Having spent the last year working on membership for the IFDA-New England, starting in 2013, I will be continuing as a board member, working on special projects, as well as being the President-Elect for the New England Chapter. It”s a great organization and brings design professionals and vendors together! I was also given the Rising Star award by the chapter at our annual Holiday Party, last Friday night. It”s been great working on the board this year, with so many committed people and working with Rob Henry as president has been a fab experience. I look forward to working closely with Nicole Hogarty, our incoming president for 2013.
