IIDA Advocacy and Policy Manager, Janella Curtis, recently gathered North Carolina Advocacy VP Chelsea Harrell, IIDA, and Senior Associate, LS3P, lobbyist Kerri A. Burke, Senior Vice President, Government Relations, North Carolina, McGuireWoods Consulting LLC, and long time advocate for interior design legislation Emmy Williams, IIDA, ASID, President of Interior Solutions, Inc, to discuss landmark legislation recently passed in North Carolina.

As a direct result of dedicated advocacy work from IIDA in partnership with ASID (The American Society of Interior Designers) and CIDQ (Council for Interior Design Qualification), significant action was taken, passing Bill 188 on July 8, 2021, establishing a voluntary state registry for qualified interior designers. This bill provides the opportunity for an interior designer to stamp and seal construction documents for permits, and is the most comprehensive bill in the profession's history paving the way for national recognition in the future.
