Aloha Members and Friends,
As I write this message we are less than four weeks from our biggest event of the year. We are going to be on the radio, television and in print. This event is going to put us on the map! Near as I can tell we are only missing one thing…..YOU.
- To date, only two companies have offered photos of their work for our booth presentation.
- We have received only 12 items for our sample sale.
- We have zero items for our online auction.
- We have two panel discussions scheduled and no panelists.
- We are offering one-hour meetings with designers and only two designers have signed up to participate, and I’m one of them!
I really thought this was what the chapter needed and what all of you… well, a lot of you, were looking for from your dues: promotion of what we do, and opportunities to meet potential clients. We have always delivered on CEUs and other networking events amongst ourselves. But to keep that happening we need to once in awhile raise some money. This is our chance.
I am very concerned and hoping that the day will not be an embarrassment to the chapter. Please sign up to participate in any way you can at http://hi.asid.org/events/design-impacts-lives.

The Leadership Experience
For a full list of upcoming events, visit www.asid.org/events.
Each day interior designers use their voices and visions to reshape spaces--and therefore the lives of those occupying them--for the better. With those same voices working in unison, they have the power to design a better future for themselves and the entire profession. That is why ASID began One Voice; to empower interior designers to get involved and advocate for or against the public policy that will ultimately influence their careers and lives. For more info:

ASID members must earn a minimum of 1.0 unit (10 hours) of approved continuing education (CEU) every two years. The current reporting period is from January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2018. We’ve updated the instructions for CEU reporting that align with IDCEC’s new website to help you navigate the process.
ASID members are to utilize the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) registry to warehouse CEUs. Every ASID member has a unique IDCEC number to login into the website (your IDCEC number is different than your ASID number). The IDCEC user registry allows you to upload and track your continuing education activity as well as store a record under your account.
