scenic desert environment and lights of the Las

layering of textures and materials enhanced by
accent lighting create a varied mood from day to

President’s Column
Welcome to the start of your ASID California
Central/Nevada Chapter for 2010-2011. Your
new Board is seated and off to a running start.
When I agreed to take on this leadership position,
I jotted down a few goals…..One was to increase
our membership and their involvement. We join a
Society, but unless a member sees value in membership that member soon
becomes disenchanted. The DCCs under Jen Hilgardner’s able direction have informational
and fun meetings planned through the end of this year and working on
next year starting with a STEP class in Las Vegas. We encourage our wonderful
Industry Partners to host a meeting – IPs get first choice of a meeting date. Besides
resources, I find great ideas in solving business and financial problems through
attending these meetings. Read those evites and attend – they are there for your
During the design of our Chapter Strategic Plan, it was suggested that we call this
“The Year of Survival”. Rather than that, I would name this “The Year of Success”. A
goal is to improve our members’ businesses – start those phone requests coming in.
No, I’m not getting you jobs – the goal of the Chapter is to help you to get your own
clients. I successfully negotiated with the Las Vegas Design Center to ensure our
designers in the Salon would be paid if their Sweepstakes Winner used the services
of a Design Salon Designer. It’s just a start. The Central Valley of California and all of
Nevada needs to become aware of the value in hiring an ASID Interior Designer.
Do you have a wish list or idea? Send it to me: jwblackstone@sbcglobal.net – I will
listen and try to make it happen!

This might have been her first clue that
she loved design. She attended
Concord University where she received
a BS in Business Administration. After
completing her degree, she worked
in the automotive industry for almost
eight years, during which time she
was transferred to the West Coast due
to her husband’s job.
She was fortunate to be able to
have homes in which she could design
and create her own space. These
moves actually guided her to get out
of the automotive industry and pursue
her passion. Jennifer went back to
college and received a degree in
Interior Design. She started her own
design company in 2007, Timeless
Design and Accents and was published
as part of a design panel in the design
book – Home Décor: A Sunset Design
Guide. In addition to being an Allied
Member of ASID, she is also a member
of Art Institute of Sacramento Interior
Design Advisory Committee.
As the Professional Development
Director for the past year, Jennifer has
had the opportunity to work with the
design community and bring more
events to the area. She has worked
with the Design Community
Coordinators and Industry Partner
Members to provide several different
events each month that have
increased attendance and awareness
of the chapter for the members.
Jennifer will continue her second year
working on more exciting events that
are both creative and beneficial to
the members.

Sacramento area she continued to
work on small commercial projects
while moving into model home
merchandising, where she enjoyed
the challenge of being creative on a
limited budget. In the early 1990’s
Susan was asked to be a guest speaker
at a local community college and
from there began her 15+ year
teaching career. She enjoys sharing
her experiences in the design field
with her students, and is pleased to
see them move successfully into the
field of design. Susan is currently

Susan Rowland, Industry Partner Representative for Ferguson
Membership Director
Susan started her career with
Familiam Pipe & Supply in 1976, a
wholesale plumbing business. After
a few years of pricing pipe and
fittings for the plumbing and hotel
industry, she realized she wanted
to move into the designer side of
the plumbing business. Susan soon
found herself working with custom
home builders, their plumbers and
designers, assisting in selections of
faucets, fixtures, and appliances.
When Ferguson Enterprises, Inc bought Familian in the
1990’s, they added lighting cabinets and counter tops to
over 300 of the showrooms across the country. Since 2007,
she has brought her vendors on as ASID Industry Partners
and has them present their CEU classes once a month to
the design community. Susan also works with design students,
by having them come into the showroom during the kitchen
and bath section of school and educate them a little on
plumbing and appliances.
As Membership Director, Susan will continue to bring in
Industry Partners to ASID in order to help educate member
and students. Her passion is the design community and

By Jennifer Hilgardner, Allied Member ASID
Professional Development Director
I would like to start off by thanking our Chapter Design Community Coordinators for all the events they
organized in 2009-2010. We tried to organize more events that gave a variety of locations and products
which lead to better attendance. We also decided to offer luncheons and socials, so members
could choose which event worked with their schedule better. This will be continued in the upcoming
year since the variety seemed to work well.
I am excited about the upcoming year for our chapter and events that we are planning. Each area
will have a new Design Community Coordinator that will bring eagerness and excitement to the chapter
events. The Design Community Coordinators will be working closely with our Industry Partners to help
showcase their products to the designers. We are scheduling events now, so please look at our web
site to see the list of events for each area. There is also a section that introduces the Design Community
Coordinators and provides their contact information. Please contact them if you have suggestions on
events or comments that can help us plan events in the future.
We look forward to seeing you at our events!

RealWorld DesignWeek
- A Success!
By Allison M. Moren, Allied Member ASID
I am excited to announce that we had great success
in our Chapter for Real World Design Week. We had 13
design professionals volunteer to mentor a student for a
day. And a big thanks for those of you who took on more
than one student. Students ranging from schools in
Sacramento, Fresno, and Las Vegas signed up.
Shadowing for the day ranged from meeting with sales
reps, specifying fabric for a project, touring completed
projects or sitting down for coffee to discuss what happens
after college. Each designer met with a student and shared
what they knew best in the design industry. All students
were very appreciative and left with more excitement
about their future career.
I sure hope that next year we can double this! Students
are the future of design, and as professionals we need to
help them along the way. We have all been there, now
remember to give back.
Hot Las Vegas Summer filled
with Furniture and Fun!
By Morgan Shifrer, ASID
Did you attend Las Vegas Market at the World Market
Center this August? What a fantastic turnout it was!
Kicking it off was our ASID Annual Social on Sunday,
August 1st. This was a chance to say goodbye to old
board members as well as welcome in the new! With
a great view from Club One Six, everyone enjoyed
some appetizers and catching up with their fellow
Monday kicked off the fun and excitement (and
exhaustion) of wandering the many floors of furniture,
art, decor, boutiques and more. There was lots of
excitement in the air as designers dreamed, planned
and shopped. Many CEU's were available to Market
attendees to enhance their experience with some
current design education. Food was also a fun part
of Market with the on-site Mundo restaurant, as well
as many other restaurants that came in for the Monday
Night Mixer. Sampling food from famous chefs of the
Vegas Valley is definitely an added bonus. Hope those
that got to attend enjoyed their time!
