In a unique, time-honored tradition dedicated to the development of ASID leaders, CLC provides an opportunity for chapter board members to engage in role training, team building, ideation workshops with staff and national board leaders, and interaction with Chapter Support Team (CST) volunteers. In addition, chapter board members will be recognized for service within ASID.

As volunteer leaders of the leading national organization representing the interior design profession, CLC helps participants to gain a better understanding of the critical and valued role they play.

Thank you to our Chapter Leadership Conference sponsors!
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 evidenced-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.
