THE ASID DIFFERENCE
DESIGN THAT IMPACTS LIVES
The Texas Chapter of ASID represents nearly 2,000 members across practitioners, educators, students, and industry representatives across the state, excluding the greater Houston area, which is represented by the ASID Texas Gulf Coast Chapter.
The ASID specializes in residential and commercial fields, from small sole proprietor practices to substantial national firms. Within the state and around the globe, as a consortium, we provide valuable services, products, and guidance to our clients.
By creating aesthetically pleasing, thoughtfully designed spaces for our clients, while considering the vast health, safety and welfare (HSW) concern for all, members of ASID strive every day to improve the quality and comfort of life for all of our client’s and the general public.
As a minimum to membership, all members complete at least 10 hours of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every couple of years. These educational courses, monitored and approved by the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDEC), can cover a wide range of topics dealing with business operations, accounting, drafting software, and communication but also very industry-relevant issues as mandated building codes and regulations, sustainable design practices, indoor air quality concerns, and a plethora of considerations for energy conservation, disabilities, and ages.
Mounting a comprehensive initiative to push the bar of individuals entering and working in the design industry, the ASID not only protects the designers but also the clients who hire them.
**Note: The ASID Texas Chapter is not an interior design firm nor employees interior designers on staff. That said, the hardworking team of the ASID Texas Chapter is not qualified or at liberty to answer questions about specific design projects. That’s what the members are there for silly.**
