HOW IT WORKS

The Ohio Kentucky Chapter operates locally in your community within our five city centers. As a student member you will be able to attend City Center and Chapter Events. Want more of a leadership role? Each interior Design program can create a Campus Center, a design centered club with a minimum of 10 students from one college that applies annually with IIDA headquarters. If you aren't a Campus Center, don't worry, your membership gains you access into our powerful design community.
SCHOOLS

Students enrolled in our design programs in our Ohio and Kentucky chapter can become members for $60 a year. Members can attend free or discounted events and have access to other networking opportunities.

CAMPUS CENTERS

Campus Center is an interior design program with 10 or more students that apply with IIDA. They establish a design board within the school's program to build a network of peers, educators, and design professionals in the area.

CITY CENTERS

A City Center is a group of ten or more members in a city who organize programs of interest to local members. As a member you may attend any event offered by city or campus centers.
