P.S. June 5th 2012- Ms. Szenasy does not advocate for an IIDA ASID merger. Seems like a missed opportunity to PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER.
How can two seemingly similar yet very disparate organizations that both claim to represent the “profession” of interior design possibly deploy an effective public outreach campaign? They can’t.
How can two disparate organizations that both started as professional networking organizations with minimal, if any, public relations efforts possibly be effective advocates for the highest levels of the profession while catering to those segments of the profession who advocate for de-professionalization of the same profession? They can’t.
Talk is cheap folks.
