We’re excited at the prospect of bringing our entire community together in one venue and believe our members will thrive and gain inspiration through convening with the entire design community. We realize that change can be a challenge, but believe that celebrating our Design Impacts Lives philosophy together will bring a renewed energy and sense of community to the organization and our members.
