Design Communities

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 would like to volunteer with any of the design communities or partner on an event, please contact the respective Chair directly.
