President's Message

Our Members are Awesome!

Many of our members were able to attend the National awards gala in Los Angeles last month as LuAnn Thoma-Holec, FASID received her Fellow award and Robert Thomas, ASID, received first place in Institutional design--what an evening!

Our own Design Excellence Awards Gala is shaping up to be just as special. The excitement and support are so high that over 50% of the seats are sold! 

Until then, join the Board at The Sandbar Thursday evening for Happy Hour! There will be a drawing and if you dress in Tiki theme, you get five extra tickets! Break out the Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, and however you define Tiki!

I am getting sneak previews of the activities/events that the 2014 Board will be bringing to you, and you will be pleased--I am quite excited as our chapter increasingly is recognized as a leader in the nation!

Stay tuned!

Cindy Lewton, ASID

Awards Gala invitation
Stardust Building Supplies Plus ASID - Together Again!

Stardust has invited ASID Arizona North Chapter to join them at the Maricopa County Home Show September 27-29 as ASID designers create a kitchen vignette to educate the public about recycle/upcycle and the value of ASID designers.

Rather than showcasing individual designers, this extravaganza will showcase our chapter as a whole and the value of selecting an ASID designer for their next project.

We are looking for designers who are interested in helping in multiple ways, from assisting in the booth, to presenting seminars (20 seminar slots available!) on subjects such as DIY techniques, green design, kitchen trends, etc.

This is actually a kitchen design competition decided by popular public vote.  Help your chapter help Stardust win $10,000!  More information to come!  

Want to participate?
