Our team has enjoyed attending some New England Home awards celebrations this fall — from IFDA New England’s “Night Sky Over Versailles”-themed gala, to New England Home’s 5 Under 40 Awards.
Is everyone adjusting to their fall schedules? We get lulled into a sense of calm during August and then September blasts off and away we go with activities for kids, school requirements and commitments related to our professions filling the calendar.
Lately, I have been out and about at many work events. In the design/build industry, we have lots of educational and networking opportunities. These tend to be clustered in the fall and spring. Some of the events honor exceptional people and projects. These award galas are fancy and festive and bring people together to celebrate their areas of expertise and the personalities who go over and above in their achievements and dedication to their craft.
We are glad to raise our glasses to our colleagues in the industry. We collaborate with many of the people who have received recent accolades. The details of the architecture, design, and décor that are highlighted in the publicity for each winner are truly breathtaking. We admire the work of each award recipient and we applaud them for their contributions to the beauty and livability of residential properties in New England. In the past month or so, we have cheered for the recipients of many prestigious programs — including the IFDA New England Award winners and New England Home Magazine’s 5 Under 40 winners.
I would like to introduce this month’s blogger, Meg McSherry. We were introduced to Meg by one of our trade partners. This is always a wonderful way to meet a new contact, as we have the endorsement of someone who we already respect and value. It has been a pleasure to get to know her and become involved in her projects.
