About the Virginia Chapter of ASID
The Virginia Chapter of ASID is comprised of Professional, Allied, Associate, Industry Partner and Student members. The Chapter is led by a board of eight members elected to their respective positions by the Chapter membership. Chapter announcements are emailed out to our members and published on the chapter social media sites and the chapter website. Geographically, the chapter is divided into three Design Communities (Capital, Hampton Roads and Southwest). Each Design Community has its own local programs. Members can join peer groups or pair up with mentors that will give them additional networking opportunities.

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.
One Voice – 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.
