Advocacy

IIDA works to advocate for design excellence, legislation, leadership, accreditation, and community
outreach to increase the value and understanding of Interior Design as a profession.

How We Give Back

LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

Each year, we provide relevant programs that appeal to the specific areas of practice represented by our membership and find ways to bring the group together to find a focus that historically never existed. Through the high quality of our Forum events (all of which provide CEUs) and our more general programs, IIDA NY has become a focus of energy for the community.

AFFORDABLE REGISTRATION

Thanks to a successful sponsorship campaign and profit from our annual fundraising programs, our events are subsidized by Event Sponsors and IIDA NY Industry Benefactors and Design Firm Advocates, allowing us to keep attendee registration fees affordable to students, educators, and designers.

PHILANTROPY

We are pleased to support local nonprofit organizations throughout the year. Each year at Color Invasion, we collect donations of children’s pajamas and books for Pajama Program. We also choose a nonprofit as the recipient of the proceeds from our annual Sustainable Quilt Auction.

IIDA NY has supported the following organizations: Be Original Americas, The Partnership for the Homeless Furnish a Future Program, Fiver Children’s Foundation, Pajama Program, and Publicolor.
