IDC-Oregon has been the face of Interior Design Advocacy in the state of Oregon for the past 20+ years, serving as a coalition of the IIDA and ASID Oregon Chapters. It has represented the Commercial Interior Design profession in Salem, and attempted to pass legislation many times. At the end of 2017, IDC-Oregon’s Board of Directors voted to dissolve the organization.
Both chapters will be rolling out committees that will be collaborating on a future advocacy efforts. These committees will be open to all volunteers interested in advocacy, regardless of affiliations. ASID and IIDA urge their membership who are dedicated to advocacy efforts to join these committees and can be assured that their chapters will be supporting all advocacy efforts in Oregon.
As we close the chapter of IDC-Oregon, we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the many amazingly dedicated volunteers who poured their sweat, tears, and passion into the effort to pass legislation. The IIDA and ASID Oregon Chapters look forward to continuing to advocate for the profession. Stay informed on current legislative efforts, including the new interior design bill, and become a supporter today.
