Design is a universal language, a language with a multiplicity of viewpoints. It is optimistic, emotional, intellectual, inclusive, and seeks to create equity for all. At IIDA, being INCLUDED holds great meaning—it is the power of community and the strength of our members individually and collectively. At IIDA, your voice is heard.

We have been galvanized to be a force for change, to create a more equitable and compassionate world—expanding what it means to be included and amplifying your voice, the industry’s voice. Together we impact the world around us, as a design community creating the power of place, and as the IIDA community at large. At IIDA...YOU are a changemaker.

"Being an IIDA member for me means being a part of a bigger community. I really value everyone's partnership in this journey we are all on to create a better industry, and a better world."

The value of membership is immeasurable.

It provides tangible benefits such as discounts on business insurance, reduced event and design competition entry fees, and access to exclusive data and tools like the IIDA Compensation Calculator. But IIDA membership isn’t just about the tangible benefits. When you support IIDA through membership, we support you through invaluable, intangible benefits that help you expand your business, grow personally, and bring about social change.

"2021 marks my fourth year as an IIDA Student Member. Throughout this fruitful journey, IIDA opened doors for me to infinite opportunities to build a diverse skill set and to meet important mentors who have encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone. These invaluable experiences have given me fresh perspectives and helped improve the maturity of my design approach. With the help of IIDA, I am more confident in my transition from a student to a professional."
