You're a design professional with the power to enhance lives. Like many of your colleagues, you may be a member of AIA, and as an architect, you should be. ASID is your competitive edge.

More and more today, building projects require an interdisciplinary team of professionals to complete development. Architects and interior designers have a seat at the project table and can provide unequalled expertise on a wide range of topics, from the healthiest products to specify for the interiors of buildings, to the best lighting to install to maintain optimal occupant circadian rhythms. You are a professional who shares the ASID belief that design impacts lives.

ASID membership will help you stand out in a crowd of architects and interior designers through networking opportunities, continuing education, and advocacy efforts that will advance your career and the design profession.

You belong in our community.
