BDAQ is proud to be part of the National Association of Building Designers (NABD). Made up of BDAQ, Design Matters (formerly BDAV), BDAWA and BDANT, NABD unifies 85% of the nation’s building design association members.
Belonging to the NABD means our members get the benefits of being part of a National Association without sacrificing the state-based focus of BDAQ.
NABD states work together to share resources like learning opportunities and member discounts as well as coming together every year for the National Design Awards.
