Q3 Report from CIDQ President

How are we already preparing for the third quarter of 2024? While this year seems to not be slowing down, we are excited to share our latest developments underway at CIDQ!


The Board of Directors and HQ staff have been busy and diligent with second-quarter travels, as CIDQ continues to advance this year’s strategic initiatives. We held our Q2 in-person board meeting at HQ offices. We have attended meetings with IIDA, IDEC, IDCEC, NCARB, and the newly formed African Council for Interior Design. We have had legislative and regulatory success in Nebraska and Oklahoma, in conjunction with our efforts with the Consortium for Interior Design – a mutual agreement with ASID, IIDA, and CIDQ.


We had a VERY positive exam administration in the Spring of 2024. Purchased exams were up by almost 400 exam seats from 2023 to 2024. In addition, exam applications were up 345 from the previous year! We are also excited to share that 543 new NCIDQ Certificates were issued this spring. Please help me by congratulating our newest cohort of certificate holders for their hard work and dedication.


We attribute the success and advancement of CIDQ to the work of our volunteers. Thank you for your continued effort in all you do. With that being said, it is time to curate our volunteer teams for 2025! We encourage you to help continue to advance the mission of CIDQ and join us. If interested in getting more involved, we encourage you to consider reviewing the volunteer interest form.


Cheers to a successful Q3! Be well and wishing you all the best –
