Building Community Through Chapter Engagement

In 2014, I volunteered to become a Chapter Co-Chair in Los Angeles in the hopes of growing our local chapter and creating events that would appeal to those in our industry. As time went on and our LA membership grew, it was exciting to see the addition of new members from various design backgrounds (signage, digital, exhibit design, fabrication and manufacturers).
