Calling Industry Partners: Get Involved with FSC!
Written by JESSE STOLOW, INDUSTRY PARTNER FOR TOTAL WINDOW, INC.

For my fellow industry partners, I think you will agree that building relationships with interior designers is at the core of everything we do. To echo the philosophy of the ASID, we are one voice, and working together can prove to be an incalculable value for our businesses. My own business has based its success on not only working with those in the design community, but also by helping those designers with needed training and support to build their business practices.

I believe that the most essential piece of the puzzle is to have industry partners working together toward the common goals of sharing resources, designing collaboratively, and recognizing that as a group we can build businesses far stronger than we ever imagined. All of this can be achieved through ASID.

Below you will read some testimonials from other industry partners on how the Florida South Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers has proven beneficial for their respective businesses. In my own experience, the more you invest in the chapter the greater the opportunity for growth you will see.

We encourage all of you to get involved, attend and sponsor our events, meet fellow industry partners and designers, share ideas, and help us build a community of like-minded professionals who are passionate about the world of design.
