Events Committee Initiatives

Starting anything new can be very intimidating. When I joined the Events Committee, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Being surrounded by many amazing and accomplished designers was scary! Everyone was so welcoming and encouraging and they were open to all my suggestions. I could see how excited they were to have a new Member on the team. Being that welcomed that quickly was unexpected to me and it was a wonderful experience.
