Professional Memberships/Affiliations

In order to remain abreast of current practices and to continue to network with other professionals I am an active member in several professional organizations and societies. These organizations provide me with up-to-date practices and product information through their trade publications and my participation in their related trade shows, seminars and workshops. Sometimes I am a presenter or author for these activities, while at other times, I am a participant so that I can remain abreast and bring these practices and products to my clients and design projects.
