Save the Date for ASID’s National Student Summit

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) will welcome interior design students to LAUNCH – The ASID National Student Summit, hosted at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), February 26 – 28, 2016. During the two-day event, attendees from across the country and representing numerous ASID student chapters will connect with their peers and explore strategies on how to transition successfully from education to practice.

“Offering interior design students resources in their professional development is a core pillar to the Society’s mission,” said ASID CEO Randy Fiser. “And, one of the most important career decisions students make is the kind of education and training they get before they begin. LAUNCH will allow students to connect in a forum otherwise not available to them as they network and share information with fellow students, educators, practitioners, and industry experts, as well as students from other schools and ASID student chapters.”

Students will learn about the various career paths available with an interior design degree, in addition to valuable insights on resumes, portfolios, and networking. “We want attendees to take away a deeper understanding of how to connect their careers to the industry, including licensure (NCIDQ), public affairs, and trends around health and wellness, sustainability, and resiliency,” continued Fiser.

ASID will review education proposals for LAUNCH and other ASID programming through November 20. LAUNCH proposals should focus on education geared toward multiple career paths for interior designers, the practice of interior design, and the profession. Learn more at

More information on speakers and programming will be published soon.

About ASID
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks, and advocacy. We thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional, and residential. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidence-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.

ASID was founded 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are leading the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big, and of the places we live with the places we work, play, and heal.
