PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER has posted many times regarding the issue of California and its private self-regulated, voluntary Interior Design certification program. While California is the largest interior design market in the nation it remains an anomaly in the big picture of the domestic U.S. Interior Design profession’s efforts to establish nationwide practice licensure status.
I have just finished reading and trying to understand the latest effort to better align the CCIDC efforts to do what it believes is in the best interest’s of California’s Certified Interior Design community with the IDCC’s goal of opening the door to some sort of mutually beneficial effort. Not sure I fully understand IDCC’s approach but it is clear that CCIDC is not interested.

Although I am simply an outside observer here and one might say I do not have a dog in this hunt-well you would be wrong. We all have an interest in how California,the other 49 states and 10 Canadian Provinces present a unified and strong professional front.
Sadly being able to play nicely in our one big sandbox is just a dream.
