My time flies when you’re having fun. Hard to believe it was only 4 short years ago we started our Island Chapter of IDIBC, and man oh man have we grown. Now with 21 Professional Members (RIDs), 7 Intern Members and 14 Student Members (future RIDs) we thought it was time to celebrate our growing group, and help spread the word about what we do. And to do it we put our fundraising efforts to good use, creating a cool new website and a couple of awesome little videos, with lots more on the way.
And to launch all our new marketing swag, we decided to throw one hell of a party.
You might think designers need a posh space and fancy cocktails to do it up right, but not this gang. Given the amount of time we spend on job sites and with suppliers, we thought, “why not switch it up this year?” Thanks to our friends at Old Country Wood Products, Szolyd Stone and Vitrium Building Products, we had the perfect spot to do it too. Surrounded by sawdust, machinery, works in progress and spray booths, we kicked back with good friends, food trucks and live music and had what we think is our best End of Summer Party to date. We invited our friends in the architectural community, contractors and our industry peers and had a attendance of over 250.
And with all these brilliant minds in one place, we thought we’d ask a few questions. So, what is Interior Design?
And now to give a shout out to all sponsors, Philips Brewery, M R Evans, Monk Office, Light Resource and Metro Wall Coverings, who helped make this night a huge success! And a big thanks to all our chapter volunteers for donating their time and talents. Now how the heck are we going to top this for next year?! Good thing we’re all creative types 😉
