The Los Angeles Chapter of ASID
Our chapter covers a geographic area extending from San Luis Obispo in the north down to the Orange County line, and from the Pacific Ocean east to Palm Springs and the desert communities. With over 500 interior designers, 270 Industry Partners, and 200 student members, ASID Los Angeles is one of the largest ASID Chapters. We represent some of the most influential and trend-setting interior designers in the United States. As a chapter we strive to increase and enhance Interior Design practice skills through continuing professional education, and ensure designers’ right to practice through state and national advocacy. We also educate consumers on the value of hiring an Interior Design professional to protect their health, safety and welfare. Finally, we aim to expand markets for all members and provide and promote opportunities and incentives for active participation of our membership.
About the American Society of Interior Designers
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) advances the interior design profession and communicates the impact of design on the human experience.
We collaborate with others to promote the value of interior design. We prepare our members to excel in a dynamic and evolving profession. We generate, collect and disseminate applied knowledge.
Membership – ASID has a number of categories for designers at every stage of their career, including students of interior design. We also have membership and sponsorship opportunities for manufacturers and suppliers who provide products and services to the industry. Join ASID’s vibrant community of 23,000+!
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.
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.
Our government and public relations 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.
