Membership vs. Sponsorship

Not sure what the difference is?


Membership in IIDA is at an individual level, managed by IIDA Headquarters.  Companies are also able to buy several Industry Memberships at a time for their employees across the country, but the Member benefits are always individual.  Member-Only or Member Pricing refers to these Members.  For more information on Membership, please click here.


Annual Chapter Sponsorship is at a company level and is a separate, local Chapter initiative aimed at providing financial support for our Chapter and giving your company visibility to our local Interior Design community.  Chapter Sponsors receive recognition at each IIDA Northland event plus a whole lot more – such as recognition on our website, in our newsletter and on all mass communication pieces.  Chapter Sponsorship truly offers the greatest amount of recognition and benefits for the dollars invested. We continually strive to ensure that we are delivering the best possible value to our Chapter Sponsors.


Both Membership and Annual Chapter Sponsorship run on a calendar year schedule.
