What are Design Communities and How Do I Get Involved?
The Carolinas Chapter of ASID is large in both membership and geographic expanse, so much of the programming throughout the year takes place at the local Design Community [DC] level.
The Carolinas Chapter has eight Design Communities with DC chairs responsible for the programming in their area. The ASID leadership year runs from October 1 – September 30.
If you are an ASID member and would like to volunteer to become involved with any of the design communities, please contact the respective Chair directly.
