SouthWest AIFD® Goals and Aspirations for 2021-2022

The past 18 months has been a period of challenges, new frontiers to face and has fractured many communities.

My goals for the SW AIFD® chapter are to reunite our community of mentors, artists, and friends. Share their knowledge with new members, recruit new members through education, leadership, and community involvement.

Through offering two “Meet the Grower Series”, on-line design educational programs and in-person design/workshop programs, I believe our SW AIFD® chapter will succeed in becoming a stronger chapter.

Education is the key in all our endeavors. We will follow the recommendations and guidelines the CDC and local government requires in ensure the heath and safety of all our members and aspiring members.

I am excited for what this year will bring to our chapter. Challenges push our creative minds into action.

SW AIFD® will rise to any challenge!  The chapter met the challenge of having their scholarship fund endowed under Past President Sue Bean AIFD!  Sue is my inspiration.

The SW AIFD® 2021-2022chapter has an excellent team of board members and directors that are up to the challenge of teamwork, using their creative minds, and mentoring through education. I look forward to their assistance and guidance.
