Message from your President
Dear Fellow ASID Members,
It is a great honor to serve as the ASID Florida West Coast Chapter President and to be surrounded by a dynamic team, our Board of Directors and volunteers. I look forward to serving our organization, our ASID members, including interior designers, industry partners, educators, and students.
Our Chapter has implemented the ASID National 5 Strategic Pillars to promote the value of interior design in both our Strategic Plan and Work Plan for the fiscal year 2020-2021.
1. Design Impacts Life
2. Living the Brand
4. Diversity & Inclusion
5. Alternative Revenue Streams
I joined ASID as a student member during my college years where I had the opportunity to attend events, enter my projects in student competitions, and meet professionals that made an impact on my career. ASID has been the leading professional organization throughout my career as an Interior Designer in both residential and commercial design. My membership offered invaluable benefits to establish relationships with Industry Partners, learn through CEU’s and business events, network with peers, and meet new members in the profession. My experience as an educator in interior design gave me the opportunity to implement an ASID student organization at our college, where our students participated in a variety of activities including Career Day, Student Design Competitions, and SCALE.
In recent years, ASID has prepared me through their leadership training for the responsibility to serve on the board for two years as Professional Development Director, and as President-elect this past year. I have the experience, passion, dedication, and time to serve as your President.
We invite you to attend and look forward to seeing you at many social, educational, and networking activities that we are planning both virtually and in-person, meeting the CDC guidelines. Keep up to date with the calendar of events through this newsletter and our website, https://flwc.asid.org/events/. We value your membership, and staying connected during this time of uncertainty and living with COVID is very important to us. We look forward to creating an exciting and successful year with you. Please connect with me at President@flwc.asid.org, and I look forward to meeting you all!
Teresa Hollweg, ASID, NCIDQ
ASID Florida West Coast Chapter President, 2020-2021
