Now that ASID’s revised membership and board structure has had time to simmer PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER has pondered the logic behind, and the wisdom of, such a change. Again I am not a member of ASID and never will be. I respect the effort it takes to manage a professional organization however I refuse to support either of our professional organizations as long as they claim, directly or by action, to do what is best for the profession. So ASID appears to be acquiescing to internal pressure (read dues paying members) to broaden it’s appeal. Seems they are lowering the standards for membership, professional status and governance….but maybe that is just me. Even if I am correct is this necessarily a bad thing?
I know there are a lot of lurkers out there- what do you think?
Is the new ASID membership structure good for ASID? Is it good for the profession?
