Valerie Fletcher to Give Keynote at IDEC 2011 Conference

Date: 
Mar 16, 2011

The Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC) will hold its 2011 Annual Conference from March 16-19 in Denver, Colorado. Valerie Fletcher, IHCD's Executive Director, will provide the keynote for the Educators as Intentional Leaders Series, and will speak on Leadership for Interior Design Educators: Moving from Recommendations to Strategies.

IDEC has a special opportunity to consider Educators as Intentional Leaders within the conference theme of Design with Intelligence. Three events at the conference will build on the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) world-wide Think Tanks. In over 50 sessions, IFI had participants address the interior design profession's Identity, Relevance, Value, and Responsibility. The outcome of the Think Tanks is a series of White Papers. These White Papers will be the foundation of a 2011 global IFI Summit, Design Frontiers: The Interiors Entity, where recommendations will be made for moving the discipline forward.

At the 2011 IDEC Annual Conference, a three-part series of events provide IDEC members with an opportunity to tackle IFI's recommendations and become intentional leaders.
