Celebrating Changemakers in 2022 | IIDA'S 28th Annual Meeting

IIDA’s annual meeting was a chance for members to gather, celebrate, and connect in person for the first time in two years, before the evening's Revel in Design gala. This year our meeting returned to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and guests were provided tickets to view our NeoCon keynote speaker Nick Cave's survey of work, Forothermore, following the presentations. It was energizing for the IIDA design community to gather and reconnect as a kick-off to NeoCon 2022.

IIDA CEO and EVP Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA, was joined by outgoing International Board of Directors President Sascha Wagner, FIIDA, AIA, for opening remarks, and to welcome newly-inducted President, Angie Lee, IIDA, FAIA, and new President-Elect Ronnie Belizaire, FIIDA, to induct the 2022 IIDA College of Fellows and 2022-23 International Board, and to present the IIDA International Honors and Awards to the 2022 Star Awardee Gabrielle Bullock, IIDA, FAIA, NOMAC, the 2022 Educator of the Year Igor Siddiqui, IIDA, ASID, RA; 2022 Student of the Year Hailey Fuller, Student IIDA, ASID; and 2022 Member of the Year Alexandra Bonner, IIDA. IIDA Foundation Chair Tara Headley, IIDA, presented the 2022 Anna Hernandez/Luna Textiles Visionary Award to Christie Porter, IIDA; the IA Diversity in Design Scholarship awardees; and we heard from 2022 John J. Nelson Sr. Legacy Scholarship awardees Rai Savage, Student IIDA, and Katrina Alvarez, Student IIDA.

IIDA also celebrated and announced the unanimous passing of Illinois House Bill 4715 in Illinois, providing stamp and seal provisions for registered interior designers in the state, and the addition of Emeritus Status for IIDA members in 2023.

This year was also uniquely special as we celebrated the 25-year anniversary of Cheryl Durst’s leadership at IIDA. Design industry professionals from across the country shared their recorded messages in tribute to Cheryl’s legacy, and continued stewardship of IIDA.
