My two year term will begin on October 1st, 2019. It is an honor to be part of the Illinois design community and have the opportunity to serve on the board with such a talented group of individuals. I look forward to enhancing the stature of ASID and the challenges that this role brings. My job will be to oversee all communication functions of the chapter, connect with the design community, serve as a voting member on the board of directors, and support the mission of ASID.
This group has done so much for me, personally and professionally.
I joined ASID as a Student Member in 2011 while attending the Illinois Institute of Art- Chicago. I quickly discovered the amazing benefits and opportunities that ASID had to offer. The following year, I was elected Student Chapter President. That year, our student chapter earned two nationally recognized awards: Student Chapter of the Year and Community Service and Fundraising Project of the Year Award. As a student, this role exposed me to the design industry and allowed me the opportunity to network with successful design professionals.
My commitment to this organization has only grow as I’ve progressed through my career.
Currently I am serving as the NCIDQ Committee Chair for ASID IL where I host study sessions for a group designers that are NCIDQ candidates taking the exam this spring. It is a personal mission of mine to help eligible designers pass the NCIDQ exam and become Registered Interior Designers.
ASID has so much to offer!
ASID members can get involved with committees and volunteer groups, attend peer group meetings, educational lectures, and advocacy events, seek mentorship or become mentors, and learn leadership and professional development skills. I would not be where I am today without the support of the American Society of Interior Designers. I look forward to being able to give back every way I can, so that I can continue to support this community.
If you’re interested in becoming more involved in ASID, please reach out! I would love to have you attend a peer group with me or participate in a committee next year! Sarah@SarahJacquelynInteriors.com
