ASID Interior Design Connecticut
ASID is a community of people driven by a common love for design and committed to the belief that interior design, as a service to people, is a powerful, multi-faceted profession that can positively change people’s lives. Through education, knowledge sharing, advocacy, community building and outreach, the Society strives to advance the interior design profession and, in the process, to demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively change people’s lives. Its more than 36,000 members engage in a variety of professional programs and activities through a network of 48 chapters throughout the United States and Canada.
Founded in 1975, the American Society of Interior Designers is the oldest, largest and leading professional organization for interior designers. The Society celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2010, but the rich, vibrant history of the organization goes back further–much further–to the founding of its predecessor organizations, the American Institute of Interior Designers (AID) and the National Society of Interior Designers (NSID).
ASID inspires and enriches its members by promoting the value of interior design, while providing indispensable knowledge and experiences that build relationships. The Society’s 18,000 practicing interior designers work in all areas of both commercial and residential design. Professional members of ASID must pass rigorous acceptance standards: They must have a combination of accredited design education and/or full-time work experience and pass a two-day accreditation examination administered by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ).

The close of another ASID CEU reporting period is fast approaching! By Dec. 31, 2013, all ASID Professional, Allied and Associate members must have met their CEU requirement of 0.6 hours as indicated in the ASID Bylaws.
How to Meet the Requirement
From Jan. 1, 2012 to Dec. 31, 2013, ASID members must obtain 0.6 CEUs. There are two ways to obtain credit:
IDCEC approved courses: IDCEC approved courses and programs are automatically accepted by ASID and most are reported on your behalf.
Non-IDCEC approved courses: Any course not IDCEC approved must be submitted to ASID before the information is uploaded to your record with IDCEC. If the course is approved, you can then log in to www.IDCEC.org and report your CEUs under your record by uploading your approval letter. Members must complete the Self-Submission Form (email email@example.com to obtain a form). It is the responsibility of all members to ensure that their IDCEC CEU records are accurate.
You are not currently required to report your CEU activity to your IDCEC record, but we recommend you do so, as it is the easiest way for you – and ASID – to keep track of your CEUs. Also, keep in mind that beginning with the 2014 – 2015 reporting period, it will be mandatory to track your CEUs with IDCEC. For more information on the ASID CEU requirements and tips on how to get CEUs, visit our FAQ page.
ASID CEU Verification Process
During the first week of January 2014, the ASID Member Engagement and Membership Departments will receive a report from IDCEC listing all ASID members and the number of CEUs each member has reported. If your record shows that you have met the CEU requirement, you will be sent notification by the end of January that you are in full compliance with the ASID membership requirement. If you are deficient in CEUs, you will be automatically audited and required to either show proof of compliance or request a 30-day extension to fulfill the requirement.
ASID strongly encourages all members to warehouse CEUs with IDCEC. This is a free service to members and enables 24/7 access to all your CEUs.
