ASID Names New Board

Washington, D.C., May 5--The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is pleased to announce the election results for the fiscal year 2004 board of directors. Anita Baltimore, FASID, was elected as FY 2004 president-elect and will succeed ASID President-Elect Linda Elliott Smith, FASID, who will become president. Janice Carleen Linster, ASID, Sue Markham, ASID, and Phyllis Moore, FASID, were selected as directors at large; and Chip DeGrace, Industry Partner ASID, was chosen as Industry Partner Representative. The new board members will take office on Oct. 1, 2003, and serve a two year term. "I am delighted these talented volunteer leaders will join the ASID Board of Directors in October," said ASID President H. Don Bowden, FASID, AIA. "I am confident they will play an important role in the board's efforts to move the Society and the entire interior design profession forward. "The ASID Board recently completed its annual strategic planning deliberations where the main topic of discussion was how to deliver greater and more personalized value to our members. In addition, the board decided to increase the Society's efforts to educate the public and other professionals designing the built environment on interior design's tremendous influence and impact on the overall well being of users of interior spaces. The Society has an ambitious agenda, but via the leadership of the current and new board members and following a policy of fiscal responsibility in these uncertain economic times, ASID will make this agenda a reality."
