ASID and Other Organizations Serving the Interior Designer Community
The interior design profession is a vibrant community supported by a number of professional organizations. ASID views these organizations as important components of the profession’s foundation. Each organization, with the exception of IDCEC, is a standalone entity and maintains its own leadership, staff and decision making structure.

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is a community of people—designers, industry representatives, educators and students—committed to interior design. Through education, knowledge sharing, advocacy, community building and outreach, the Society strives to advance the interior design profession and, in the process, to demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively change people’s lives. Its more than 36,000 members engage in a variety of professional programs and activities through a network of 48 chapters throughout the United States and Canada.
