Welcome CDG retirees and active legacy members to this secure area of the CDG website, designed especially for you and your interests and needs. As you proceed past this portal page, the functionality of the pages will remain as they have in the past — but with a new interface and a few navigational changes.

The Legacy Committee is honored to lead the way in helping our members understand all facets of their pending retirements. Our mission is also to welcome retirees back into an active connection with the Guild, where we can honor their accomplishments, and perhaps facilitate a mentor partnership between “seasoned” and “young” designers. We hope you will find many interesting articles and suggested practices for preparing for retirement, and then enjoying it!
