Membership Award Program

The Membership Award Programs are made possible by our Chapter Sponsors. In an effort to increase and retain membership, the Texas Oklahoma Chapter Sponsors contribute to the Grants listed below by meeting the cost of IIDA Sponsorshp for one year.

Renewing Member Lottery Award

The Renewing Member Lottery Award is for active renewing Members. Each local City Center nominates (1) Member from your City to enter the lottery. One (1) name of the seven is chosen at random by the VP of Membership

New Member Award

The New Member Award was established to encourage Interior Designers to join IIDA and to help Unemployed Interior Designers retain their membership. Each of the seven City Centers within the TX OK Chapter nominates (1) New Professional and (1) New Associate Member to the VP of Membership for approval. A total of fourteen awards are bestowed thanks to our Chapter sponsors. The New Member Award include both the annual dues and application fee.

Applicant Eligibility Criteria:

  • Employer does not pay for professional organization dues or only pays for the portion of membership dues
  • Must not be a current IIDA Member
  • During difficult economic times, the Chapter Board does allow the City Center to allocate these awards to unemployed members who are unable to pay their IIDA renewal fees. This will be at the discretion of the VP of Membership.

For further information email Erin Rinehardt, IIDA – TX OK Chapter VP of Membership at or your local City Center Membership Director.
