Too often now, when folks as us what we do for a living, we either go on the defensive, or start listing tasks. Neither tactic is very effective in telling the postive story of value, complexity and strength that our profession deserves! This event will educate our members and industry partners on how to best craft an impactful story - an elevator speech definition, if you will - around what Interior Design is and what each of us do to add value to the profession. IIDA an ASID have partnered to create this event and bring together our member and industry. Expect to hear an update about what IIDA and ASID have been up to on the advocacy front!
