Our Holiday Luncheon

We enjoyed good food and good friends at our Holiday Luncheon at Figs in Monroe.  All the right elements made it a wonderful afternoon.

Thank you, Kathleen Bivona, for leading us this year! We look forward to 2018 and all it holds for our CT Chapter of IDS!

Our September 19th general meeting…

We visited Connecticut Lighting in Hartford for 2 CEU’s detailing extremely valuable information for us, as designers.  Door locks and door handing can be confusing but not anymore! If you attended the CEU you should be all set now!

The second CEU pertained to LED lighting. Again, today’s program was absolutely full of information you need to know. Our presenter was knowledgeable and entertaining, which made learning a little easier still!

Carla Snowdon, an IDS member, put together a wonderful morning of pertinent information and included a delicious light breakfast and lunch. Thank you Carla!
