Celebrating our international Chapter teams!

The National Chapter Board and SDN Global are excited to announce the first ever SDN Chapter Awards. The Award Ceremony will take place during SDGC17 on November 1st 2017.

There are now 29 international Chapters with teams of volunteers working hard to raise awareness and grow the market for service design because they passionately believe it is the key to social and economic success in their local community.

The Awards commend five chapters for their great work, commitment and achievements when it comes to chapter events and initiatives. The ceremony at SDGC17 will highlight the value of our chapters, celebrate their success and raise awareness amongst SDN members about their work. The winners will have their initiatives showcased as examples of best practice that our community can learn from on stage and in an exhibition.
