Member Boards

CIDQ's membership is made up of U.S. state boards and Canadian provincial associations that regulate the profession of interior design. Member Boards are represented at the CIDQ Council of Delegate by an appointed Delegate, who is responsible for keeping open lines of communication and information between CIDQ and the regulatory body that he or she represents.

To learn more about applying for membership for your jurisdiction, email Lori Barker at CIDQ's National Office,
