Advocacy

IIDA advocates for the advancement in design excellence, legislation, leadership, accreditation, and community outreach to increase the value and understanding of interior design.

We are strong advocates for the registration and certification of practicing interior designers who work in a code-impacted environment.

What it means to advocate

To advocate for interior design means to support, champion, and commend the profession to people, organizations, and legislators. It also means knowing how to communicate what interior designers do to various stakeholders.

Work with us as we advocate for legal recognition so that you may expect more from your careers in terms of control, growth, project ownership. Participate in direct action and learn how to successfully talk to your legislators about interior design, engage with current best practices and breakthrough research, and recognize interior design through IIDA's advocacy program. We encourage you to be involved in advocating for your profession on the state level.
