General Assembly

Our General Assembly (GA) is held biennially, bringing together our leadership, membership and external stakeholders to discuss the progress of the closing two-year term and prepare for the incoming term’s activities.

The GA is the our highest authority with decisions taken exclusively by members – i.e.: corporate, educational, professional and promotional members. It addresses key issues affecting the industry, guides the future of the organization by electing new leadership, aligns the direction of the organization with the interests of both the membership and the wider international industrial design community, and sparks dialogue about the power of design to create a better world.

The City of Torino, Italy, will be hosting the 30th General Assembly in October 2017. Next year will mark 60 years as the international voice for industrial design. More information will be available to members by logging in.
