Emerging Professionals Committee
ASID defines this as: “Interior designers within +/-5 years of professional practice are considered emerging professionals where they begin to define their career. Upon entering mid-career, interior designers begin to refine their career and focus their work. During these career stages, the interior designer’s path is self-defined with opportunities to pursue advanced education, certifications, and specialties.”
Absolutely! We fully support having students take on active roles within the EP committee to help them develop necessary skills while still in school and help them build their professional network prior to graduation. This is always on a voluntary basis and doesn’t require specific commitments.
This committee’s purpose is to bring together young designers and connect them to other ASID Wisconsin members and the overall design community. We welcome student members and are open to any designers involved in ASID or who would like to be involved in ASID. This includes (but is not limited to) students, beginning, and advanced designers as well as non-members interested in ASID membership. We typically hold open planning sessions on a bi-monthly basis and plan 3-4 full chapter events each year.
