Hoffman, owner of his own 16-year-old, Clinton, Miss.-based design firm, previously served on the group’s board as the Region III Director (2009-2011) and for two years, was on the organization’s communications committee (2007-2009) which was responsible for helping to redefine the association’s communications strategy including a new website and database that launched in 2009.
