HOUSTON CITY CENTER JUNE CEU

HOUSTON CITY CENTER COUNCIL

June 21st a small group of designers met for an evening CEU hosted in tandem by Columbia Forest Products and Dal-Tile. The topic was “Decorative Hardwood Plywood and Interior Air Quality”. Richard Poindexter with Columbia Forest Products educated the group on understanding composite core adhesive options and formaldehyde emission issues. Multiple samples of the differing applications were passed around the group to touch and feel. Dal-Tile generously provided refreshments and their showroom as a meeting place. An HSW credit and tasty meal capped off the evening.

The Metropolitan Multi-Service Center was the setting for Houston City Center’s annual Barrier Free CEU Event. Participants were led through this strategically designed environment allowing them to explore numerous universal and accessible spaces, including an adaptive fitness room, full court gym, wheelchair-accessible indoor pool, and the Playground Without Limits. To top it off, participants were able to spectate a Wheelchair Rugby Match! The guided tour was followed by an interactive discussion and Q&A session with none other than Lex Frieden, Director of the ILRU Program at TIRR Memorial Hermann and instrumental player in the development of ADA.

HOUSTON CITY CENTER THANK YOU TO PAST COUNCIL

If you happen to remember last year at this time at the beginning of my term as Director , I likened myself and our upcoming IIDA year to a Tasmanian Devil, whirling around and around at break-neck speed. That analogy has remained true. It has been a wildly exciting and successful year for our Industry. We have seen tremendous growth in Houston design firms equating to busy, busy designers...but not so busy that they didn't make time to attend a few project tours, CEUs and maybe an entertainment event or two. All work and no play = bad news! This year's IIDA council has worked tirelessly to provide creative, educating and entertaining diversions throughout the year. In October, volunteer designers created masks to disguise us at Art & Artifacts Masquerade, in February, we volunteered time to encourage design students at our 12th annual Student Conference, and lest we forget all our volunteer design teams' hard work to give back to our community with Product Runway in May. Our organization is nothing without volunteers, so part of my next adventure as Past Director is to rally those in our A&D community to make our industry stronger and connect them with the opportunities they are passionate about. The memories I have collected from this past year will stay with me forever. There is a saying that has proven very true for me...You get out of life exactly what you put into it, so even though this particular adventure is over, my next adventure is just around the corner, waiting for what I can put into it.
