President’s Message

We in the South Central Region are still feeling inspired! Our National Symposium, “Inspiration” was amazing! It was so wonderful to gather with our AIFD family to be educated and wowed with the talent that was assembled for us.

This year we are also thrilled to have ten new inductees added to our region. Your determination and dedication to the art of floral design has gotten you this far, and this is just the beginning of what you can accomplish in your career. You are now a member of the most prestigious group in our industry. You should be very proud of yourselves and your accomplishments. Welcome to the South Central Family, and we are extremely proud of you!

This year we are again offering our educational grants, which are available to each state in the region. This money is set aside for each state in our region to help with the expenses for an educational event. If your state would like to apply for a grant, you can e-mail any member of the South Central Board of Directors. There is a listing of our e-mail addresses on the AIFD website.

We are also planning our Annual South Central Design Forum for the Spring of 2017. This year it will be in Denver, Colo. Watch for more details on our Facebook page and the AIFD website. We will be presenting a wedding design program. Come and check out the latest trends and styles from some of the most talented designers around.

Remember that fall is just around the corner and, it is time to start merchandising all of your amazing fall products. Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year, so make those displays stand out in your area! Use the amazing fall color palette to showcase you unique style and taste.

Always remember if you have any questions or concerns about anything going on in our region don’t hesitate to contact me or any board member. We are here to serve you to the best of our ability!
