IDC elects 1st and 2nd Vice Presidents to Board

Published by Candis Green, May 29, 2013.

IDC is pleased to announce that Denis Chouinard has been elected as 1st Vice-President and Aandra Currier Shearer as 2nd Vice-President effective September 2013. IDC revamped its elections process last year to provide for a two year VP term prior to becoming president of the association. It was felt that, given the significance of the role with respect to representing the Association and the membership, that the President should have measurable IDC Board experience before committing to the role.

Candidates interested in becoming President of the Association must first serve as a Director on the Board prior to running for 2nd Vice-President. They are elected by the Board of Management. For this year only, both a 2nd VP and 1st VP were elected.  From here on in, a new 2nd VP will be elected annually.

Denis Chouinard is a  Senior Advisor at Desjardins Group in Montreal. He has been with Desjardins since 1976. He has been involved with IDC and APDIQ (Association professionnelle des designeurs d’intérieur du Québec) for many years holding various committee and board member positions. In addition, he has been a member of ARIDO since 1999. He was the APDIQ Board representative on the transition committee and has been on the IDC Board of Management since 2010. Most recently, Denis was President of APDIQ and is now Past President of that association.    

Aandra Currie Shearer was elected as 2nd VP. Aandra is a member of IDAS (Interior Designers Association of Saskatchewan). She has been with Kindrachuk Agrey Architecture since 1997 and is a current IDC Director representing Saskatchewan. Aandra has been involved with IDC Board since 2009, when she first began volunteering as a member of the transition team.

Congratulations to both Denis and Aandra! Nominations are now open for other vacant positions on the board. Click here to read the notice to see if you are eligible for one of the current vacancies.
