The Value of Design
Why be a Part of ASID? ASID TX
“Everyone who is here today is what I believe is a leader. You are all passionate about ASID and our members. The question is why? Why do we all care so much about ASID and our profession?
I believe as interior designers we change people’s lives and make the world a better place. We chose this profession because we care about people. We care enough to devote our lives to making people’s lives better through the built environment.
Each of you has touched my life. Some of you have served on the board with me; each of you has reached out to me in one way or another. Today I am reaching out to you and letting you know that I believe that your participation in ASID has made it a better organization and has changed our member’s lives. I thank you for joining me today and in the year to come.
Our Strategic Plan is our roadmap to achieving our goals. Our vision, mission, and core values are the guideposts for all of our initiatives. All strategic planning deals with at least one of three key questions: What do we do? For whom do we do it? And how do we excel?”
