To kick off the month of October, Erik Peterson attended the highly-exclusive Design Leadership Summit in Washington D.C for a full three days of education sessions, museum and monument tours and networking dinners.

The Design Leadership Network was founded in 2003 with an inspiration and a vision to support design firm principals through educational programming and a peer-to-peer community. What began as intimate regional meetings with high-level designers, architects, landscape architects and industry influencers, is now a national organization of top tier design industry professionals across multiple disciplines, corporate brands and media outlets. Members are among the most highly respected individuals in their fields.

The DLN was founded by Peter Sallick, a creative entrepreneur and business leader who has led Waterworks for most of the past 20 years and co-founded Dering Hall.  

Invited to join in 2017, this was the first DLN Summit that Erik has attended, and what better city to kick things off in than Washington D.C. In a city where impeccable and groundbreaking design is everywhere, attendees of the Summit were able to take part in private tours of the U.S Capitol Building, United States Holocaust Museum, Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Museum, the Kreeger Museum and dinners at the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and the British Embassy.
