ASID Mission Statement

ASID advances the interior design profession through knowledge generation and

sharing, advocacy of interior designers' right to practice, professional and public

education, and expansion of interior design markets


            The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is the oldest and largest professional association for the interior design profession. The society was founded in 1975 following the merger of two interior design associations.

            With more than 33,500 members, ASID provides a common identity - a single voice - for the interior design community. Besides being a vocal proponent for the interior design profession in national and international arenas, the Society maintains a strong presence in local communities across the U.S. and Canada. Currently, 48 chapters serve as the focal points for member involvement in ASID and its programs.

            A volunteer board of directors guides ASID's strategic direction and initiatives. A staff housed at the headquarters office in Washington carries out the daily operations of the Society.

            ASID's 33,500 members encompass a spectrum of diverse specialties and interests within the interior design profession. The society boasts a membership of:

                      20,000 Practitioners

                      9,000 design students

                      4,500 Industry Partners in 1,600 companies and organizations
