Board Member Quotes:
‘My involvement on the IIDA Oregon Chapter Board of Directors has allowed me to practice my leadership skills in a safe, collaborative environment with like-minded individuals who speak the same language in Interior Design and who share common goals to see our Chapter succeed. I have been fortunate to use my brain in a different way that I usually do in my design job and foster skills that directly relate to working in the design profession. Overall my experience has allowed me to work with designers and reps from many different firms and in all has been a rewarding networking experience making me feel a part of the larger design community.’ – Emma Silverman, IIDA IIDA Oregon 2014-2016 Chapter VP of Membership
