Why Should I Join the ALD?
BECAUSE - unity means strength and influence
BECAUSE - it is an investment in the future of lighting design (instigating training opportunities and supporting bursaries and awards)
BECAUSE - it propagates excellence and shared information within the profession.
BECAUSE - it brings together a profession which is otherwise a collection of isolated individuals.
