I love being a part of IIDA as it has opened my career to new opportunities as well as my social network. It’s easy to forget that there are other types of work in our industry of design. I was working on large scale civic projects, and had no contact with firms that were doing other project types. I had no idea I would be so interested in corporate interiors until I talked to people at these events, doing this type of work and now I can’t imagine doing anything else.
IIDA is the reason I have friends in other firms that I can collaborate and socialize with.
IIDA is the biggest reason why I know what the most cutting trends are, what the newest products are, and what other firms are doing, which helps me stay marketable in this industry. Lastly, IIDA always throws a great party, and who doesn’t love having a reason to get dressed to the nines.
