Member Types & Dues

Professional Members are actively engaged in the profession of interior design or design education and have passed the accrediting NCIDQ exam.

Designers who are actively engaged in the profession and meet the educational requirement for the NCIDQ, but have not yet completed all parts of the examination. Most individuals who have recently graduated and are beginning their career are at this level. Applicants must meet the education requirements of the NCIDQ exam or equivalent (a two-year certificate in interior design or equivalent educational credits).

IIDA offers a special member rate to students and recent graduates who were active student members. See our Student Membership Benefits page for all of the unique perks offered specifically to our Student Members.

Full time educators and department chairs who are employed by local Colleges or Universities may join as a Professional or Associate member, but may be eligible for reduced rates.

Manufacturers and dealers/distributors of interior design products (carpeting, furniture, textiles, wallcoverings, etc.). This membership type offers tremendous networking opportunities for companies to promote their products and services to IIDA Members.

The International Dual Membership and International Membership reflects the Association’s international focus. These membership levels allow you to take advantage of member benefits and networking opportunities wherever you are located. With over 30 worldwide chapters, including Europe and Asia, IIDA is poised to take an active role in the international design community.

IIDA recognizes that when you are passionate about design, that passion often lasts a lifetime – whether you are currently practicing or not. If you want to retain your membership through retirement, or if you are unable to continue practicing due to disability, illness, unemployment, or relocation, contact to inquire about Inactive or Retired Status.
