IIDA RMC Education Fund in Honor of Pam Weeks – 2015 Winners


Pam Weeks was an IIDA Rocky Mountain Chapter Board member. During her years on the board she served as City Center Co-Director in Denver and Vice President of City Centers; additionally she was active on several IIDA committees such as the IIDA BESTawards and Holiday Gala. To say she was a vibrant piece of the Rocky Mountain Chapter and our design community would be an understatement. Her positive attitude, authenticity, and magnetic personality made everyone want to be around her. Pam was one of those rare bright lights who proved that there is goodness and strength in this world. Pam was always looking for ways to give back and provide a positive impact to our design community.

One of Pam’s favorite annual industry events was NeoCon in Chicago – she loved learning, seeing all the new products and networking. For several years Pam “sponsored” designers to attend NeoCon with her. In Pam’s honor, we will continue to “pay it forward” by sending two deserving IIDA Rocky Mountain Chapter Members annually to NeoCon to grow, learn, and enrich themselves as a design professional.

Congratulations to 2015 winners:
