North American Chapter (NAC)

North American Chapter (NAC)

Announcing the North American Chapter


In late 2015, the Design Society approved the creation of a North American Chapter (NAC). Overall structure, membership, and goals of the NAC are described in our ABOUT page.

While we are still bootstrapping the NAC, we intend to provide a number of events and services in the coming years, some of which are:

  • an annual Faculty Retreat to discuss strategic and research issues surrounding design;
  • specific programs and awards to foster professional development of junior researchers;
  • "branch" summer school programs intended to extend the reach of the DS's successful summer school program to North America;
  • services to help North American graduates and junior researchers find academic employment;
  • and more....

If you have any ideas or comments, or would like to get involved with existing or new activities of the NAC, please feel free to drop us a line at
