General ASID

Who is ASID?

Founded in 1975, ASID is the oldest, largest and only multi-disciplinary professional organization for interior designers, interior design students and the manufacturers and suppliers who support the profession.

More information can be found here.

What are the benefits of membership?

ASID has a vibrant community of 23,000+ members with a number of categories for designers at every stage of their career, including students. When you join this community, you get access to all of our offerings:

  • Research & Knowledge Management: Our research team provides economic, sector, career stage and of course, design data and research to the marketplace. Through the ASID Foundation, we provide over $100,000 in funding annually to various research and scholarship initiatives to help build the knowledge community for the interior design profession.

  • Professional Development: We offer career stage programming that focuses on the Impact of Design, the Business of Design, Leadership Development and Health & Wellness. We offer both online and in-person engagement opportunities. We also offer study prep courses for the WELL exam and seminars for principals/owners interested in learning about business transition.  
  • Advocate by Design: Our government and advocacy team works at the state and federal levels to represent your interests as an interior design professional AND as a business owner. Our first priority is right to practice –whether that be through interior design legislation or seal/stamp privileges at the municipal level. In addition, we lobby on issues that affect the business of interior design, such as copyright, lien rights and company ownership. Want to get involved in our advocacy efforts? Text “ASID” to 52886.
  • Communications: Our challenge is getting your attention, because we understand the amount of content you receive each day and your busy schedule as a designer or industry professional. BUT, we have so much to offer you, as evidenced from the list above. So, give us a try. Whether it is the award-winning ASID magazine i+D, ASID Insider or Eye on Design newsletters, Chair’s Message, an event notice or through your social media channels, we are confident you will find something that makes sense to you among the noise because at ASID – we stand out in a crowd!

If I attend this conference, do I get a discount on my membership?

Yes! In addition to waiving the application fee ($100 for designers), your membership term will also be extended 2 months, providing you with 14 months for the cost of 12.
