SDA President Candace Edgerley Steps Down
April 4, 2012
During her term as SDA board president, Candace Edgerley has helped SDA enter a new era as a membership-supported organization. She has faced challenges that ranged from relocating the national conferences to dealing with a major overhaul of the website.
Edgerley has been active in SDA since she attended her first conference in 1997. “I was in heaven taking a shibori workshop with Joan Morris,” she remembers.
By 2006, Edgerley had accepted a board position as Director of Membership. When the vice-president position opened in 2007, she accepted it and worked with Jason Pollen until he retired as president in 2009. She managed the huge endeavor of traveling the member exhibition from 2007-2010. Then in 2009 she stepped up to be SDA President.
Calm, precise, discerning – and always ready to help, Edgerley has been a dedicated volunteer leader of our organization.
Edgerley also looks forward to spending more time in her studio while continuing to teach surface design classes at Corcoran College of Art + Design. She savored her new-found “civilian” status (effective as of April 1, 2012) by attending a workshop following SDA/SAQA joint Identity conference in Philadelphia instead of the SDA Board meeting.
“I plan to continue to enjoy everything that SDA has to offer,” she exclaims.
(We hope she’ll continue to offer SDA her outstanding proofreading skills! -Ed.)
Please join the SDA Board & Staff in extending a sincere THANK YOU to Candace Edgerley for her service and contributions to the stability, growth and refinement of our member-focused organization.
Bon voyage, Candy!
