IDI Welcomes new Membership Manager

Welcome to Catherine Jordan, IDI's new Membership Manager, and first point of contact for IDI members.

We are delighted to announce that the IDI have appointed Catherine Jordan as Membership Manager. Catherine has come to us from the RDS where she was acting Head of Membership (Membership Manager 2015-2019) and prior to that the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, where she held the position of Membership Manager for almost three years. In RCSI and the RDS, Catherine developed the organisation's growth, retention and engagement strategy and implemented a dynamic and comprehensive events programme and communications plan ensuring Members were accessing a comprehensive and varied benefits proposition.

Catherine holds a Masters in Business (Leadership and Management), has spent much of her career in membership and client focussed organisations and puts relationship building at the heart of her work ethic. She looks forward to meeting IDI members and to working with design businesses to ensure they have access to supports, networking, training and career opportunities.

Catherine has always been drawn to the creative and design world and is thrilled to be joining the IDI and to working with her IDI and Design Skillnet colleagues to develop and deliver a strong and impactful membership value proposition for all Irish commercial design professionals.


IDI's CEO Charlotte Barker said: 'Catherine brings a wealth of membership understanding and expertise to the IDI, and is committed to creating valuable member experiences. We are delighted to welcome Catherine to the IDI team.
