A Message from the President
For the last six years, I have been so fortunate to have followed and trusted the leadership of NOMA PGH presidents before me. From Bill Bates (2014-2016), to Gerrod Winston (2017-2018), and from our latest president Alicia Volcy (2019-2020), each of these esteemed leaders gave our chapter different aspects of themselves in fellowship, mentorship, and leadership. Each being influential and impactful in their own way, and each building up the chapter we are today. And it is with this knowledge, insights, and support in hand and heart, I am excited to continue their excellence in becoming the President of NOMA PGH for the years 2021-2022. I, with the unwavering support of our chapter’s executive board and members, am dedicated to uplifting this mighty NOMA chapter and for the continuation of our chapter’s mission to “champion diversity with the design professions by promoting the excellence, community engagement, and professional development of our members”.
