International Door Association (IDA)
The International Door Association (IDA) is a leading trade association representing the door and access system industry. Its mission is to provide advocacy, education, and collaboration to advance the industry with increased professionalism1. The IDA is organized into four regions, each represented by a member on the IDA Board of Directors3.
IDA’s primary mission is to serve those who sell, install, and service garage door products. It provides educational information, programs, and services to help its members operate more profitably and proficiently2. The association publishes the award-winning IDA Magazine, which offers informative articles about the garage door industry2. Additionally, the IDA Store offers educational courses to help maintain IDEA accreditation and certification, as well as service stickers and decals to promote professionalism within the industry2.
The IDA also organizes events, such as the IDAExpo+, which is held annually4. The expo provides an opportunity for members and industry representatives to network, learn about new products and technologies, and attend educational sessions.
IDA affiliates are trade associations with missions similar to that of the International Door Association. These organizations work cooperatively to serve the garage door industry more effectively at the grassroots level3.
