As we reflect on 2022, we have a lot to be thankful for. We welcomed thirty new CHID Certified Healthcare Interior Designers® to our community. We had a wonderful year of engagement with our fellow CHIDs and our Industry Partners. We engaged with our certificants and Industry Partners in six Community Connections events. We were recognized as leaders in the healthcare industry as several of our certificants served as jurors for the 2022 Touchstone and Nightingale Awards and three of our CHIDs were appointed to serve on the 2026 Facility Guidelines Institute Health Guidelines Revision Committee. Many of our CHIDs presented educational sessions and coaching workshops at national conferences throughout the year to share their knowledge and expertise.Most importantly, our Board of Directors worked together to develop a strategic plan to guide us forward for the coming years. We solidified the mission and vision for the American Academy of Healthcare Interior Designers (AAHID), and we defined the four pillars of our strategic plan.
Developing a diverse community that connects our CHIDs, industry partners, and the greater healthcare industry by Creating Community
Contributing to the knowledge base of our community through Education and Research
Advocating for the recognition of AAHID through our efforts to promote greater Recognition and Outreach
Ensuring the continuity of the organization by retaining our CHIDs and recruiting new examination candidates through our focus on Organizational Continuity
