“The Referral Program offered me a substantial discount on annual dues for referring a colleague," says Pierre Spenard RGD. "I already value being a part of such a diverse group of design professionals, so this discount was a pleasant surprise. Thanks RGD!”


The RGD also offers a Team Membership for design firms, agencies and in-house design teams with 5 or more people. Your organization gets the best rates on conferences, access to professional development and resources and significant savings on the cost of individual Memberships, all while saving to $1500.
