The Chicago Chapter of Industry Partners of ASID met for a meeting and mixer at O’Briens in Chicago on Monday March 8th. A number of Chicago Industry Partners have formed a peer group that meet once a month to discuss and share ideas on how to better serve the design community. This meeting included a number of designers who shared with the group their needs and requirements from vendors. Sarkis Tatosian of Oscar Isberian Rugs is a founding member of this group and has found it very beneficial and educational. The group is seeking new members, anyone interested can contact Sarkis at 847-475-0000 or at
