President’s Message

Greetings AIFD members,

I hope all is going well! I really missed not seeing you at Symposium this year, but know we’ll be together in person soon. I’m here to report the goings-on in our chapter and share a little bit about what to look forward to. First and foremost, we have started work on the NW chapter AIFD website. So, stay tuned for next month’s announcement when we have that up and running. As chapter president, I have been excited to create a new adventure with fun virtual meetups for our chapter and beyond. This month we’re meeting on Tuesday the 18th for a Taco Tuesday themed hour. Find the event at this link and keep an eye out for next month’s coffee chat.

We’re working hard on planning other larger events, and possibly some sort of virtual education. Social media posts about your newly appointed chapter board members will be available shortly on our social media pages. If you haven’t joined our Facebook or followed us on Instagram, come and say hello! It’s so important to stay in touch and socialize in ways we can. I have been trying to send out a few text messages daily to flower friends just to give a few smiles.

If you have been up to anything fun, we would love to let you shine on our social media. Please send content to us via Facebook messenger or direct message on Instagram. We love to see our chapter members out and about! Doesn’t have to be specific with flowers, if you are just having fun in the sun we want to see that, too.

I have been hard at work on co-hosting, with Shawn Michael Foley, a first of its kind virtual summit kicking off the “Floral Revolution” as we call it. Fleurvana! We have over 20 presenters over 4 days. I can give you details on a free ticket if you contact me. It has been a really fun and exciting project. I am really looking forward to the live dates this month on the 23-26th!

That’s all for now, thank you for reading. Looking forward to seeing you at Taco Tuesday or any one of our social virtual meetups.

Florally yours,

Gina Thresher AIFD, EMC
NW Chapter President 2020-2021
