Message From Our President

Rebecca Penno

2020 IFDA-DC President 

We have an exciting year ahead! The focus for the year ahead is GROWTH. In the first quarter we will launch our 4-part business education series to encourage our membership to seek growth in both their businesses and themselves as industry leaders. We will cover topics each quarter to help you sustain your business in an industry that is rapidly changing. We continue to fine tune each program to benefit our members in DC, Maryland and Virginia providing opportunities for all of our members to participate and get to know one another and the businesses we operate and /or serve. We hope that this coming year you will seek to be active in our IFDA-DC community. We hope that as a representative of IFDA you will introduce our network of friends to a colleague so that we continue to expand our community and see continued growth in membership.


Mark you calendars! On March 7th we will host our 7th annual Masquerade Ball to benefit Rebuilding Together. Since Resources, our tabletop to-the-trade vendor expo, is every other year,we will focus our efforts this coming year on Night of Stars. In November, we will celebrating our members and present awards for projects submitted recognizing the success that both members and non-members have completed. Keep an eye out on emails for both of these marquee events. As always we have so much more throughout the year.


I am thrilled to serve you all as President of our Washington DC chapter and look forward to growing with you.
