Hartford/New Haven
The Hartford/New Haven City Center is an active group whose events range from education, building tours and guest speakers.  We also have 3 annual events being our golf outing, clam bake and holiday gala.  Our focus is to bring Connecticut’s interior designers together to expand their professional network and gain valuable information to use in real time through our events. We are looking to expand this year with new professional and student members.  We are a very active and fun group always looking for new ideas to share with our members.

Providence is a vibrant City Center in a close-knit community. Their focus on community, education and professional development is exhibited by their fall Habitat for Humanity build day, Student Award Competition, Green RI – A Sustainable Product Showcase and their annual Holiday Gala that highlights their philanthropic ties. This group also knows how to have fun, anyone attending their annual Croquet Tournament at the International Tennis Hall of Fame can attest to!
