Our Mission

The EDPA Northeast Chapter creates an environment of collaboration to strengthen and maintain a sustainable industry focusing on education, benefaction and succession.

We do this through:


Provide mentorships to students concentrating on design and production.  Our intention is to provide thought provoking industry specific dialogue.


We are committed to providing opportunities for chapter members to learn about and impact the exhibit community while at the same time being stewards for the industry.


Giving assistance and support to our community is our preeminent objective. Contributing to the welfare of local families and people in need feeds our soul.

EDPA members have chosen to join a 21st century community of like-minded professionals seeking to position their organizations to thrive in today's marketplace. Participation in our community has a profound effect on the future of both your organization and the EDPA.
