The ASID offices will be closed on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day. We thank you for your understanding.


Every day, the interior design profession is affected by the issues deliberated in state legislatures, governors’ mansions, and the U.S. Congress.

Successful advocacy doesn’t happen by accident and requires diligent planning, thoughtful deliberation, long-term strategic vision, and active participation. The ASID Advocate by Design program advocates for the profession of interior design on the federal, state, and local levels of government, fighting for legislative and regulatory policy issues that advance and protect the practice of interior design and its related interests. 

ASID knows that our members and chapters are the most effective advocates for the interior design profession, from defending and advancing the industry, to promoting policy initiatives important to all designers. The Society believes that we should all advocate for design through diligent planning, thoughtful deliberation, long-term strategic vision, and active participation.
