East Bay City Center

Welcome to the IIDA East Bay City Center page! We are a group of professionals that explore design, social issues, and also provide professional growth to help individuals become leaders in our industry. We are always looking for fresh ideas to inspire our members.

Creating the leaders of tomorrow to make an impact on design.

The East Bay City Center has a series of programs that our members know and love. We kick off the year with our Members Only event where we explore local design. Throughout the spring, we host a series of CEU events to help with professional development. In May, Design in Motion is a charity event that supports the mission of the chapter and also a local East Bay charity. We end the year with forums and student events.
