Well it’s been about 2 years since I trotted out this proclamation and while there has been some positive movement toward this vision….we are still singing too many songs from too many hymnals. It’s time to re-post;
ONE VOICE – ONE CREDENTIAL – ONE MISSION
© 2012 PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER
ONE VOICE: We need to have one professional organization that is devoted to serving the best interests of vetted interior design professionals by continually raising the standards of professional status, advocating for our legal/political rights in a unified, cohesive manner, and promoting our unique value to society. The old adage that there is strength in numbers does not count if we don’t have a clear direction.
ONE CREDENTIAL: We need a brand identity that clearly communicates our unique value to society and demands the respect that we all have earned. And no this brand is not “Interior Design” nor are we merely “Interior Designers”. Since anyone with a pulse can claim that title it does not make sense to try to make it our own unique brand- does it?
ONE MISSION: To allow us to compete as equals to, or independent of, other licensed design professionals.
What part of that is unclear? Not a rhetorical question.
