  • One of the questions we are frequently asked is “How are my membership dues spent?” KINETIK Inc., in Washington, D.C., has developed this Flash movie to help answer that question.
  • Self-employed professionals should note that membership dues are fully tax-deductible as a business expense. Those who work for larger design studios or in-house design departments should inquire if dues can be paid by their employers.
