R.I.D. A.S.A.P.

Just two examples of the pro-regulation proponents acquiescing on the title of interior design.  From 2009; 

Oklahoma – SB 592, a bill amending the Interior Design Act, changed the title of licensees under the Act from “interior designer” to “registered interior designer” and was signed into law May 13.

Texas – HB 1484, a bill amending the Interior Design Act, changed the title of licensees under the Act from “interior designer” to “registered interior designer” and was signed into law May 12. 

So what part of this needs to be legislated? All we have to do is create one umbrella credentialing agency, copyright the trademark and start promoting the brand. HELLO! Why are we paying Uncle Sam to tell us what we can call ourselves. I don’t get it…..and I am a freakin’ liberal. 

If we as a profession can do this as step one. Get everybody on the same page. Sort out the registered/qualified from the posers BEFORE we demand government protection then how much easier do you think the process to license the practice of Interior Design will be? 

AAAAAAAAArrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
