Heritage of the International Door Association

The rich history of the IDA is captured within the pages of the IDA Heritage Book. The document highlights key events during the past two decades, and actually beyond.  The book includes prominent achievements of each president’s term and comments from many of the early day leaders.  If you’re interested in learning more about the association, this book is a terrific resource.
