Membership provides a multitude of opportunities for professionals, educators and students of industrial design to meet, learn, share knowledge, collaborate and expand their career aspirations. Non-ID professionals who are also part of the broader design community may also gain from the connection with industrial designers to support their professional goals, take advantage of benefits and contribute to the community as Affiliates.

In North America, including the United States, Canada and Mexico, IDSA members may join professional or student chapters. In all other countries, they may join international hubs. The international hub program is just getting started and IDSA welcomes the creation of new hubs that will serve the IDSA mission and the professional needs of local industrial designers.

All IDSA members may also join professional and special interest sections. These sub-communities allow members to organize around issues of specific importance to the profession or to professionals.
