 A Letter to President Obama

By Michael Alin, Hon. FASID

Dear President and First Lady Obama:

As you prepare to take office, it is natural that your attention be focused on the economy and your first 100 days. However, as you and your family move into the White House, it is important to consider your home’s effect on your family’s health, safety and welfare.

Interiors & Sources Reader Polls:

Are you in favor of legislation that requires interior designers to be professionally licensed? What will be the greatest challenge to you or your firm next year? In which market segment will your firm see the most business in ’09? Has the weakening economy affected your firm’s billings? Is your firm taking steps to reduce its carbon footprint? Would you use a virtual product library to order product samples over keeping physical sample books?

To voice your opinion on crucial issues such as these, take part in our Reader Poll
