In addition to these amazing honorees, we are
so pleased to welcome our newest members of the
ASID College of Fellows: Barbara Barry, Julie Schulte,
LuAnn Thoma-Holec and an Honorary Fellow, Rick
Peluso. These individuals have demonstrated incredible commitment to the profession of interior design
and to ASID. I am so pleased and proud of the achievements of our colleagues. Without their efforts, we
would not be the organization that we are today.
I believe that it is incumbent upon us to recognize
the work of all those who dedicate time in service to
ASID and to advancing the profession. We have many
volunteers and practitioners in our chapters, design
schools, committees and coalitions, who dedicate
countless hours to promote the profession of interior
design and exemplify the importance of what we do
to enhance the quality of human life.
You likely know of someone in your professional
circle that is deserving of recognition and I would
encourage us all to consider the opportunity to recognize others and share the great work that is being
done to advance the profession. The more we can do
to promote these activities, the more we can move the
entire profession forward. Communicating the impact
of interior design is critical and celebrating interior
design is important ... to us, our clients and the public. The message begins with us! i
