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.
