E-Newsletter: May/June 2019
ASID Hawaii is once again hosting Design Impacts Lives, a fundraising and awareness event on September 7. The purpose of the event is threefold:
- Educate the public on interior design today.
- Community service event to raise funds for our chapter to fund educational events and CEUs.
- Raise funds for Habitat for Humanity.
This free event will be open to the public and heavily promoted on TV, radio, print and social media in a big way. This event brings huge benefits to interior designers, so don't miss out on the opportunity to showcase your work and to meet potential clients. And...drum roll please... it's free to attend and participate!
But in order to reap the benefits, you need to participate. Throughout the day there will be booths and table tops by sponsor companies, all focused on presenting materials that can impact our work space, home life and emotional well-being. We will have an ASID booth that will have a continuous loop of member projects, including last year’s award winners and information on the value of working with a designer. Meet a Designer and the Panel discussions give you direct interaction with the public goers who are seeking design assistance.
Here are the ways in which you can participate:
- Purchase a sponsorship (includes a booth or table and speaking opportunity).
- Donate items to our sample sale.
- Sign up as a panel speaker.
- Participate in Meet a Designer. Specialties: Kitchen/Bath, Residential, Commercial, Hospitality.
- Submit project photos for our slideshow (focus is on projects that can positively impact our work space, home life and emotional well-being).
- Volunteer your time.
Thank you very much for your support!

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 are to utilize the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) registry to warehouse CEUs.

The IDCEC user registry allows you to upload and track your continuing education activity as well as store a record under your account.
