ARIDO’s Committees are Recruiting!

  • Published on: Apr 22, 2024

Have you wanted to take a larger part in impacting ARIDO’s work?

If you’re interested in adding your experience and insight to move the 2023/25 Strategic Plan forward, and be part of our collective advancement of equity, diversity, and inclusion, think about joining one of ARIDO’s committees!

These committees work on advancing ARIDO’s Strategic Plan by providing guidance and insight. They meet virtually each month for 1-2 hours. It’s also a chance to complete professional development credits for volunteering! (1 credit per year, 2 max per cycle)

We need perspectives from everyone! If you’re a Student or Intern, this can be a great way to be connected with practicing Interior Designers, and if you’re a Retired member, a chance to provide your expertise to the next generation!

We are continuing to invite industry partners to take part in ARIDO’s committees!

Please submit your name and experience to the form below by May 3rd.

ARIDO is committed to ensuring these committees reflect under-represented groups such as Black, Indigenous and people of colour, the LGBTQ2S+ and other marginalized individuals currently within and emerging into the interior design profession.
