IIDANY Speed Mentoring Event

DESIGN THIS! is an extension of the IIDA NY Speed Mentoring event and was created to further support students through active design mentorship with industry professionals. IIDA NY invites all undergraduate and graduate design students to participate in a design charette competition.

At the event, student participants will be given a design challenge (inspired by the Iron Chef America show’s “secret ingredient” cooking competition). Only at the event will the event sponsor reveal the product for the students to design, along with the concept and criteria involved.

Students will be broken into small teams and will have 1.5 hours to complete the competition, including two “advice breaks” with Mentors (industry professionals) where feedback is given on their team’s design. Before awarding a winning team, each student group is allotted five minutes to present their final designs to a panel of esteemed judges from the industrial design and interior design community.

THE DESIGN THIS! EVENT WILL BE HELD AT THE SHAW INDUSTRIES SHOWROOM ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14TH AT 6:00PM.
AN “EYE CATCHING” WORK SAMPLE IS ESSENTIAL TO GET YOUR FOOT IN THE DOOR TO THE FIRM YOU HAVE YOUR EYE ON!

A work sample is an edited version of your portfolio and provides potential employers with a preview of your best work. The IIDA New York Chapter is hosting its First Annual Student Work Sample Review where leading Architecture and Interior Design professionals will coach students to create effective work samples.

Participating students should bring 8-10 printed images (including drawings, plans and/or renderings) of their best work. Each student will receive two individual sessions with professionals who will help them edit their images and craft successful work samples. Each session will last (?) minutes long. The goal of the event is to offer students unique professional guidance on how to best market themselves in their job search.

Registration for the Student Work Sample Review is on a first come first serve basis, and participation is limited to students graduating this Spring or Winter.

Students will be notified of confrimed participation by March 15th.

Did you know that IIDA requires all Professional and Associate Members to complete and report 1.0 CEUs (10 hours) of Continuing Education every two years?

The current compliance period runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2015. IIDA Professional and Associate Members are required to complete and report 1.0 CEU (10 hours) of Continuing Education prior to December 31, 2013. All Professional and Associate Members (active and inactive) including Educators, IIDA Fellows and Chapter Officers must adhere to IIDA compliance requirements.

The current compliance period applies if you became a Professional or an Associate Member prior to January 1, 2014. This allows you two years to complete the 1.0 CEU requirements. If you became a Professional or Associate Member after January 1, 2014 your first compliance period begins January 1, 2016.

IIDA accepts all IDCEC approved courses. It is the responsibility of each Member to maintain their own records. Please review the Helpful Hints PDF before using the IDCEC CE Registry.

If you have attended a course which was not IDCEC approved (AIA, GBCI, etc.) and wish to apply it towards your IIDA compliance you may submit it for review using the new Non-IDCEC CEU Approval (NICA) Form.

IIDA reserves the right to request proof of compliance at any time. Members should maintain copies of their IDCEC attendance records, such as certificates of attendance, IDCEC CEU verification cards, and IIDA approval notices for NICA Forms. If Members are selected to participate in an IIDA compliance audit at the end of the two year compliance period, they will then be asked to either supply HQ with these copies or submit a listing of them.

A full list of IDCEC CEU courses can be found here.

Following is a list of online self-study CEU opportunities.
