Fitzgerald Elected to IIDA NE Board of Directors

The International Interior Design Association New England Chapter installed their new 2012-2013 Chapter Board. The new Board members were nominated and elected by the Professional Members of the IIDA New England Chapter and were formally inducted at the Chapter’s Annual Meeting held at the Red Thread + Steelcase offices and showroom in South Boston.

On her new role as Board Member and VP of Professional Development, SMMA’s Marie Fitzgerald said, “I’m thrilled to take on this role within the IIDA Board. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with the interior design community and give back to IIDA.”

Asked about the significance of the Professional Development initiatives at IIDA, Marie reflected, “As the economy continues to look stronger, more design opportunities will present themselves in the coming year, making this moment an important one for designers to position themselves to meet the challenges of a new professional climate. Our job is to support both the up-and-coming designers as well as seasoned veterans for those changes and I can’t wait to get started!”
