Q: How Do I Apply For Membership?
Q: Who should I list as the main representative of the company?
A: The main representative of the company can be anyone from the general manager of the company to the President. It is important to remember that the main representative's address has to be the same as the offices address of the company that is applying for membership. The main representative is responsible for the company's membership dues and for any additions or changes made to that membership.
Do I need references?
A: No. The application reference procedure was officially amended by the ASID National Board of Directors and went into effect in September of 1997.
Q: How do I select a membership category?
A: Membership categories are based on company gross annual sales to the design community.
Q: How much money do I send?

Q: What are additional representatives?
A: Additional representatives are members added to a company's existing membership category.
Q: How much does it cost to have additional representatives?
