About the Boston IAHSP Regional Chapter
To become a member of the Boston Regional Chapter - IAHSP (BIRC), you must be a licensed business owner in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, or Connecticut, and provide Home Staging and/or Interior Re-Design services.
All members must be either a professional home stager or an interior designer, and must also carry either the ASP RE, ASP, or ASPM designation, or any of the other approved designations. Members must also have an active membership in IAHSP. All members are subject to our ethics guidelines for participation and business conduct.
To learn more about what designations are acceptable for membership in the Boston Chapter of IAHSP, please visit our "Join Our Chapter Information" page.
We meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month, unless otherwise noted. Meeting locations rotate across the region so as to accommodate all members.
Our meetings consist of business networking and education, round table discussions based on industry issues, and discussions about how to expand and enhance Home Staging and Re-Design services in the most professional manner possible.
Guest Speakers cover subjects that relate to the many topics of importance for our businesses.
We invite companies from the Greater Boston area who provide services to the Home Staging industry to become Affiliate Business Members. Among other things, annual membership of the Affiliate Business Member allows the business owner to market their services directly to our chapter members, make a presentation at one or more chapter meetings, and attend our educational events.
Please contact our Membership Chair, Deb Lockett, at [email protected]/* */ for more details.
World Wide Staging Service Week 2017
Discussions are underway for the 2017 WWSSW event. Come back to this site to learn how these efforts transpire.
Our 2015 effort was a tremendous opportunity for our group to be of service to others. The 2015 Charity was HEARTplayâ„ in Wayland, MA.
HEARTplayâ„ is Parmenter`s award-winning, free program that uses the creative arts to help children and teens cope with the illness or death of a loved one. An Expressive Arts Therapist / Licensed Mental Health Counselor meets with families in their own homes or at the Hospice Residence to provide families with tools to support and comfort one another in challenging times. In addition, Heartplayâ„ Workshops meet one Saturday per month. Participants are grouped according to age and grade. There are groups offered for Pre-K and Kindergarten, Grades 1-6, Middle School and High School.
