IDSA communities in the United States, Professional Chapters and Student Chapters, are organized into Districts to support a robust interconnection. The structure allows for even distribution of these communities around the country and ensures equitable support from headquarters to serve the populations of working professionals and students of industrial design.

Districts are established or changed by the IDSA Board of Directors in accordance with IDSA Bylaws.  Each District is led by a District Chapter Representative (DCR) who plays an active roll in supporting the professional and student chapters within their district. These DCRs also assist in the organiztion of the District Design Conferences each year and serve as a connection point for chapter leaders across the country.

Here are the five (5) District Chapter Representatives:

Chapter Director Candidate 2018
Northeast District Chapter Representative
Candidate for West DCR 2018
Candidate for Midwest DCR 2018
Candidate for South DCR 2018
