As the oldest and largest professional organization for interior designers, the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) seeks to communicate the impact of design on the human experience with its #DesignImpactsLives campaign. Now more than ever such organizations are critical to the advancement of the profession.
Our department is proud to announce that five of our alumni now serve on ASID’s Florida North and Georgia chapter’s 2019-2020 boards! Florida North President Kelley Robinson (class of 2014), Florida North Legislative Chair Dr. Lisa Waxman (class of 1980), Florida North Tallahassee Design Community Coordinator Anna Osborne (class of 2017), Georgia President-Elect Tony Purvis (class of 2012) and Georgia Emerging Professionals Co-Chair Jocelyn Turcotte (class of 2017) are leading the organization to new heights.
ASID’s Florida North Chapter, serving Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Gainesville, and Orlando, is known for its efforts in the political arena in addition to offering opportunities for professional development. With the threat of deregulation looming over our state, the Florida North Chapter works tirelessly to ensure that the interior design profession remains licensed.
ASID’s Georgia Chapter, based in Atlanta, has an incredible impact on their community with 660 practitioner members, 225 Industry Partners, and 250 student members. An emphasis on professional development encourages members to participate in CEUs to remain on the cutting edge of the design community while emerging professionals are supported with research and resources to amplify their skills and connections.
Please join us in congratulating all our alumni on their new positions and encourage them as they help move the profession forward.
