Board of Directors
The CIDQ Board of Directors is the leadership body that sets CIDQ’s strategic direction. With legal accountability and fiduciary responsibility for CIDQ, the Board’s purpose is to establish the goals for the organization and ensure that it has the necessary human and financial resources to achieve them. The Board selects and supports CIDQ’s Chief Executive Officer, who is delegated the authority to lead and manage the organization's affairs on a day-to-day basis.
CIDQ's Board is made up of seven NCIDQ Certified designers and one public member (who is not an interior designer) to serve as the voice of the public. The CEO serves as an ex-officio member of the Board (see staff listing). Nominees for the Board are selected by a nominating committee and elected by CIDQ’s Assembly of Delegates. Board members serve two-year staggered terms beginning each January. The President serves a three-year term, first as President-Elect, then as President, and the third year as Past-President. The Board includes representatives from the group of State and Provincial Regulatory Boards that collectively make up CIDQ’s membership (i.e., Member Boards), as well as other interior designers who reflect the diversity of practice in the field.
