city centers

The Tennessee Chapter of IIDA is comprised of three City Centers: East Tennessee, Nashville, and Memphis.
The Director of each City Center is responsible for organizing and leading sub-committees of local members to plan and execute specific activities and events for their area. City Center leadership and participation is a great way to see what IIDA is all about, develop leadership skills, and help shape the future of the Interior Design profession in a direct and hands-on way.

Tennessee Chapter Board members begin their service to IIDA on the City Center level. For more information on your region, including what is happening, what is planned, how to get involved, general Industry questions, suggestions or comments, please contact one of the three City Center Directors below.
