ADI's Professional and volunteer Interest Sections are a way for members to network and exchange information on topics of professional interest. Members can specify interests when they complete a membership application, but can change their selections at any time by notifying ADI. Current sections are: Vision First ( Reach voice of design to policy makers) Design Education Design Management Design IPR Protection Design Research Sustainable Design & Practice Design Trends Universal Design Design Events & Organisation Funds & Finance Membership Program Organisation Management
Absolutely! As an ADI member, you can attend any ADI national, district, chapter or section event and take advantage of member discounts where offered.
All ADI members would belong to a geographic chapter. Designers based outside major metropolitan areas may, of course, have to travel farther to participate in meetings and events. If you relocate to an area served by a different chapter, you can become a part of that chapter or remain a member of your previous chapter.
Minimum 20 members are required before a region can be granted by NEC to create a chapter. Till then, members are attached to the nearest geographic chapter. The final decision to create a chapter rests with NEC, ADI.
