The interior design profession is heavily impacted by the public perception of our industry. We can better develop a more accurate perception of our profession by maintaining an activate presence and utilizing our skills and knowledge as interior designers for community service. These opportunities allow us to engage members of our local community and provide a creative outlet to promote the interior design industry in a positive way.
Our first community project will benefit Rebuilding Together Seattle , a local non-profit organization that provides donated repair services to low-income homeowners and non-profit facilities in need. IIDA NPC will evaluate their current headquarters and work to implement a more efficient office environment, enabling their staff and volunteers to better serve their organization needs.
IIDA NPC is continuing to look for committee members interested in community outreach to provide service work that is directly related to what we do as design professionals. Currently the committee is focused in Seattle, but would love to grow and develop opportunities on the East side of Washington and Idaho over the next year. If you are interested in participating, please contact the VP of Government and Regulatory Affairs for further information.
The links below can support your advocacy efforts to promote legal recognition of the interior design industry and inform interior designers, students of interior design, legislators and the public of our qualifications and value as interior design professionals.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please reach out to the IIDA NPC VP of Advocacy.
