Let DMI be the canvas on which we underscore the power of design to engage people emotionally through our processes, our environments and our work.
I have difficult news to share. Our President, Michael Westcott has been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Michael's contribution to DMI has taken the organization to a new level with visionary ideas that include The Design Value System, and FuturED the Future of Design Education.
Michael has been leading DMI with great courage and grace as the march of the disease progresses.
To help Michael and the Board during this transition and to lead the organization into the future, the DMI Board of Directors has appointed Carole Bilson as our new Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
To our DMI community of 30,000, we thank you for your continued support during this challenging period.

To our dear friend Michael, on behalf of the DMI Community, we wish you well–
