Call for Nominations 23/24 ARIDO Board of Management

ARIDO is on a transformative journey prioritizing diversity, equity, accessibility, and reconciliation. We strongly believe that the opportunities to evolve our framework should be inclusive, and the representation of our members is integral.

In preparation for this call for nominations, we recognize there are opportunities to improve the present Board of Management composition as it relates to the diverse representation of our membership, in order to reflect the regional diversity of Ontario.

As an Association that is focused on developing and guiding the future of the Interior Design profession, we believe it is our responsibility to lead and advocate for equity.

We are actively focused on the continued diversification of the ARIDO Board for 2023, and beyond. We encourage and welcome nominations from members who identify as belonging to any underrepresented or diverse group.
