NEWH - Fall 2020 - 92

CHAPTER HIGHLIGHTS

Washington DC Metro
The chapter started 2020 off strong with a "Pal"entines-themed membership drive held in the JANUS et Cie showroom in Georgetown, Washington DC.
The evening was filled with a catered Valentines appetizer spread, pink bubbly, and mingling. After the networking hour, guests participated in a panel
discussion: "Building Your Personal Brand," moderated by Kavitha Iyer, Marriott International. The panelists included Jennifer Farris, BANDURAdesign;
Alexandra Bruemmer, DesignAgency; and Jenna Hackett, Hilton. The chapter also honored founding member Barbara Azzinaro of Cohen Azzinaro
Associates with the Joyce Johnson Award.
	 Shortly after the start of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the chapter board met virtually to discuss how it could be of service to its members
during this time while continuing to provide events. From these discussions our first virtual series, Maven Motivation, was created: a virtual gathering
on Zoom that calls on our Maven sponsors to create a collaborative concept to engage the chapter. Thank you to all the sponsors who have made
these events possible: National Solutions, Signature Carpet, Architectural Ceramics, Tarkett, Momentum Textiles & Wallcoverings, Tilebar, Spacia Group,
Samuelson Furniture, Milliken, Designer Tile & Stone, De Young Associates, KD Swanson, Country Casual Teak, Shaw Contract, Durkan, Distinction
Hospitality, the Bo Group, Kellex, and Spartan Surfaces.
