Our beloved administrator, Caitlin, is about to leave us. This is sad news for us all as Caitlin has had a profound effect on the way the guild has performed over the two years she has been with us. Her wonderful personality, diligent attention to detail, great communication skills and work with Dan Willis and Peter Sheehan APDG developing our new and improved website has helped set the APDG on a positive course for the future. For me personally, Caitlin has been an absolute joy to work with. From all of us in the APDG, a huge thanks Caitlin. We wish you well on your future project.
After some sad news, some happy news. Caitlin’s replacement as APDG administrator will be Rebecca Whittington. Rebecca comes to us with extensive experience in administration in the performing arts, most recently with Musica Viva. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship. Welcome Rebecca.
More good news. Our members continue to shine on the global stage. Peter England was recently nominated for a Tony for his brilliant work on King Kong. It never ceases to amaze me that from a relatively small Australian community of designers and design professionals, we produce such stars. Stephen Curtis interviews Peter in this newsletter edition.
In April, we announced a new membership level for emerging designers and graduates. These members are eligible to apply for a reduced membership fee of $75 a year for 3 years after graduation (before upgrading to a full membership). If you would like to apply, please click here.
