President’s Message

It was wonderful to see so many of you in Las Vegas. I am very excited and honored to be your current chapter President. I would like to extend a job well done to regional members who did an amazing job at Symposium. A special applause to Lana Chernyavsky AIFD for presenting an inspiring program on the main stage in Las Vegas. I also extend our gratitude to Sharrai Morgan Faulkner AIFD for her success with the hands on class Fun with Foliage. Erik Witcraft AIFD and Frank Blanchard AIFD blew us away with their final night décor. Thank you Lana, Sharrai, Erik and Frank for representing our region and doing an amazing job!

As fall is approaching we are excited for some fun floral events coming to our Northwest Region. We intend to educate, inspire and sell some books at these events. We hope to see you there!

Sunday September 22nd we will have an awareness booth at the United Wholesale Flowers Anniversary show in San Jose, California. Come support Mike Hollenbeck AIFD from the Northwest who will be presenting at this event as well.   Contact Nita Robertson if you are interested in more information.

The Montana Floral Association Convention will take place on September 27-29 in Missoula. We will have a table promoting AIFD and our chapter at this event. There is a great lineup of presenters including Patience Pickner AIFD, Tom Simmons AIFD and Leanne Kesler AIFD. Contact Lindsey Petersen AIFD for more information.

On Sunday October 6th we will have an awareness table at the Fall Gala at United Floral Inc. in Canada. Contact Louisa Lam AIFD if you want more information on this event.

Our chapter is also working on getting involved with the 9th Moon In Portland later this fall. Keep your eyes peeled for updates.

We have a great region and I appreciate all of you. If you need anything or want to get more involved please let us know.

Let’s do great things together!
