ASID Announces Premier Partnership with Sherwin-Williams

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is pleased to announce and welcome Sherwin-Williams back as an ASID Premier Partner. The Society is thrilled to have the support of Sherwin-Williams as it showcases the impact of design on the human experience, and celebrates the value interior designers provide.

As a leader and innovator in the coatings industry, consumers and designers count on Sherwin-Williams’ expertise through every step of the design process – from vision to execution – and rely on the company’s local service and expert advice to provide the perfect paint options for every project. Sherwin-Williams supports designers by offering free Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for ASID chapters on topics such as the latest high-performance coatings, color trends and forecasts, color and culture, and much more.

“As a long-term advocate of interior designers, Sherwin-Williams is thrilled to continue our partnership with ASID and work towards our common goal of progressing the industry,” said Archie Bartel, director of marketing, Sherwin-Williams. “We look forward to another year of celebrating and supporting the interior design community.”

ASID Premier Partner sponsors strive for the highest level of alignment and integration with the ASID design community and enjoy the largest presence across the spectrum of ASID national platforms. ASID Premier Partners pursue goals in thought leadership, education, and research, and support key ASID strategic initiatives and industry drivers.

“ASID is an organization that thrives through the commitment and generous support of our partners,” said ASID CEO Randy Fiser. “The Society is thrilled that Sherwin-Williams is an ASID Premier Partner and looks forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship for many years to come.”

As part of its ASID Premier Partnership, Sherwin-Williams will provide support for several ASID events in 2017, including The Leadership Experience: Presented by ASID, and the annual ASID Presidents Forum. Additionally, the company hosted an ASID Engagement Advisory Council meeting earlier in the spring.

We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.

ASID was founded over 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s.
