Member Profile: Kathy Demsky

At EDRA, most of us know Kathleen ‘Kathy’ Demsky as the energetic, cheerful, and incredibly resourceful Coordinator of the Publication Display during the past 28 EDRA conferences. She, along with her husband Conrad Demsky, were two of the familiar faces that we eagerly looked forward to seeing again each year at the conference. Kathy has provided an exceptional service to EDRA by organizing the annual book display and creating a vast and comprehensive ‘EDRA Collection’ of books and bibliographies. With this inaugural EDRA Member Profile, a new feature to show our appreciation for long-term EDRA members, we introduce Kathy and share her story with the EDRA community.

About EDRA

The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) is an international, interdisciplinary organization founded in 1968 by design professionals, social scientists, students, educators, and facility managers. EDRA came into being during a period of social awareness and social unrest. Consequently, our agenda, the social aspects of the environment, was clearly a product of the times. The 1960's were a period of new horizons and new visions.
