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
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.
