AIFD Recognizes Long-Term Members/Symposium Attendees with Laureate Status

The American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) has announced an exciting new recognition for its longtime members and symposium attendees. Members with 21 years or more of membership, who have also attended a minimum of ten (10) National Symposia, may apply to become Laureate status. (Pictured above are some of the current Laureates who were recognized at the Annual Members Meeting at the 2013 Symposium.)

This was designed to express AIFD’s appreciation and recognition of members for their long-term membership, as well as their support of the annual National Symposium. It is a way to say “thank you” and to salute these members so that others may aspire to the same level of dedication to AIFD as they have demonstrated!

AIFD Laureate Status Members will be saluted in the annual Membership Directory and on the AIFD website, and will also be recognized at future Symposia they may attend. The Laureate status will not affect annual membership fees.
