WHAT A SHAME……
So here’s the deal; the Institute for Justice and the National Kitchen & Bath Association say that we are being anti-competitive and the American Institute of Architects is afraid we are trying to be too competitive. WHO’S RIGHT?
PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER says; As long as we (the NCIDQ certified/pro-ID regulation side) are very careful not to infringe upon interior designers rights (we must distinguish all legal efforts to be for “registered” or “certified” interior designers) and on the other hand we defend our right to be considered professional peers with architects, which will in fact provide more choices for the consumer (see IJ/NKBA laments) then we are right.
We (the NCIDQ certified/pro-ID regulation side) must also keep in mind that if our goal is to achieve professional parity with architects, and that ID’ers truly are more qualified to design interior space, we must prove that in the court of public opinion before we even think about taking the issue up in the court of law.
I’m just sayin’
