WELCOME MEMBERS! Monthly update from the National Chair of CDECA. Read to learn more about what CDECA is doing for you! Dear Members, be held on May 21, 2014. We celebrated the CDECA’s 20th Anniversary on Monday, April 14, 2014 as well as CDECA™’s AGM and 2014 CDECA™ Decorating and Design Competition at the Estates of Sunnybrook, in Toronto, Ontario. Everyone enjoyed the presentation by Glen Peloso, Principal of Peloso Alexander Interiors, Inc., our keynote speaker, together with his partner, Jamie Alexander. The luncheon was excellent as usual and, this year, we celebrated with a special cake for dessert in honour of CDECA’s 20th Anniversary. The Awards for the CDECA™ Decorating and Design Competition were presented against the backdrop of a new video format. Your Board of Directors, elected by the Members, for the period 20142015 are as follows: Andrea Cowan Molyneaux Mary Dancey Pamela deVries Sandy Grugric Pamela Harrod Joanne Jakab Linda Kafka Kelly Margani Lana McIver Wanda Vuignier Theresa Santandrea-Cull Monika Siebert The officers will be elected by the Board of Directors at its meeting to

We also celebrated our ten-year founding members (they will be receiving a commemorative pin) as well as our retiring directors. I am also pleased to mention that we have at least 150 members who have been with CDECA™ for more than 5 years! At this time, I also announced that the Board of Directors recently made a decision to change management association companies. As of June 1, 2014, Becker Associates will be managing CDECA™’s National Office. I wish to thank Dalton Communications Inc. and its team, Karen Dalton, CAE, Karina Waluk, Kiki Cloutier, Jorge de Mendonca, Bryan Sparks and William Chow for their assistance in managing the CDECA™ National Office for the past 6 years. I hope you enjoy viewing the various images of CDECA’s 2014 AGM contained in this edition of the IDEAS newsletter, as well as the digital Annual Report. Sincerely, Pamela Harrod, Chair, CDECA™

20th Annual AGM & Awards Gala This April CDECA celebrated its 20th Anniversary at an elegant event at the Sunnybrook Estates in Toronto. CDECA honoured its volunteers and 2014 award winners. Pamela Harrod cutting the 20th Anniversary Cake


O

n April 14th, 2014 CDECA members, volunteers and staff gathered together at the Sunnybrook Estates in Toronto to celebrate the 20th Annual General Meeting and Awards Gala. Members from all across Canada came to the well attended event which featured a meeting of members, a keynote presentation, and awards gala. At the annual general meeting past and present volunteers were thanked by the Chair for their contributions to the organization. Four new volunteers were elected to form the new National board. In the spirit of CDECA’s 20th Anniversary celebration, the keynote speaker, Glen Peloso took attendees down memory lane. Mr. Peloso’s presentation shed light on where the industry was twenty years ago and how much it’s changed. While trends continue to change every few years, no one could’ve predicted how much technology would change

the business. Social media has been a game changer in the industry and has greatly impacted the dynamics in the decorator/ client relations. While traditional and social media has lead many consumers to believe that home makeovers happen in 72 hours or less, and cost a few hundred dollars, Mr. Peloso provided decorators tips on how to debunk these myths and manage client’s expectations. The festivities of the day were wrapped up with the annual awards gala. The 2014 CDECA Decorating & Design awards celebrated the achievement of 25 decorators in 8 categories, with an additional Student project category. In addition to acknowledging the overall achievement of CDECA’s decorator members, the awards ceremony honoured the expertise and talent of the 25 entrants. The caliber and quality of the winning entries was impressive, and CDECA would like to congratulate its 2014 winners once again!
