Nominee must be an individual who is not an interior designer by profession but has demonstrated outstanding service and significant contributions to a chapter(s), and/or to the body of knowledge that supports the profession of interior design
The following must be submitted for each nominee:
Each ASID chapter is allowed one nomination for each Medalist category for every 300 professional members. This translates into one nominee for the first 300 professional members, two nominees for chapter membership between 301 and 600, and so on. ASID members can also nominate independently from an ASID chapter. A nomination by an ASID member does not override a chapter nomination or reduce the allowable number of nominations.
