That’s designer math for you.
So Interior Design Magazine stirred up the old “If ASID and IIDA were to merge as one organization, how supportive would you be?”
Ummm let me think about that for a nanosecond…….Duh!
Not sure where Interior Design mag is going with that survey (readers were asked to respond to firstname.lastname@example.org ) but since the address is id”research” we can assume that they are simply researching the obvious…..is the sun warm?……….is oxygen a valuable resource?……would the profession of interior design be better off with one professional organization?
What get’s my goat is I really do not know what more is needed to make the case- this has been going on for years yet we still cow-tow to two organizations claiming to represent US.
Here are just a few recent pleas for unification;
There is also an interesting discussion on the NCIDQ LinkedIn page about this subject;
There are some heavy hitters chiming in here in favor. Like I said what more can be said? The proverbial ball is in ASID and IIDA’s court as it has been for OH ABOUT 30 YEARS! (emphasis by author). So you can ask “So PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER, you have not paid dues to either organization for 15 years what are you doing to help them understand the importance of this issue?” and I will respond “Exactly”.
Okay seriously here is my new mantra (I am offering this free to Interior Design Magazine BTW)
