A New Vision for Interior Design Education

August 14, 2014

I’m so pleased to share with you the news that the Council for Interior Design (CIDA) Board of Directors has invited me to participate in establishing priorities for the future of interior design education. In early November 2014, at the CIDA’s Future Vision Session, I’ll be joining a “diverse group of nominated thought leaders to establish educational priorities for entry-level practitioners in 2017 and beyond.”

Those of you who know me are aware that I’ve devoted much time and energy throughout my career to groups that establish, license and recognize the professional preparation of interior designers. I held a position on the Founding Committee for the New England Chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Business Leaders Breakfast, as well as serving as its co-chair and chair. I’ve served as president of the New England Chapter of ASID, and currently serve as the president of the Massachusetts Interior Design Coalition (MiDC), in addition to maintaining my own interior design firm.

I feel honored to be a part of the CIDA’s Future Vision sessions, along with many other design leaders. I’ve long believed that the interior design profession needs a set of quality assurance standards and educational requirements to ensure that licensed professionals in the field receive the recognition and renumeration they deserve.

I’ll keep you posted on our findings and discussions in November. For more information, visit the CIDA here.
