During her acceptance speech, she pointed to sustaining opportunities for young designers and increasing Latin American growth as goals for her presidency.
“Marlene’s passion for design, her leadership at top global firms, and her expertise in the industry make her the ideal candidate to serve as the next president,” says IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl S.
