Upcoming Events

04.19 [Stevens Point], 04.26 [Green Bay + Fox Valley], 05.02 [Madison]

IIDA + ASID Advocacy Forums

Join in the discussion live and help elevate the awareness of Interior Design Legislation Goals for the Future.  

IIDA and ASID of Wisconsin invites you to participate in one of the statewide discussion near you.  Refer to our website for registration and location details.

As Interior Design professionals, we are accustomed to taking risks and dealing with complexity. On a daily basis, we are pressed to keep up with ever-changing technologies, juggle competing priorities and meet impossible deadlines.

Yet when it comes to taking action to advance the practice, many designers feel overwhelmed. The entire topic can seem too complicated, too political, too abstract. It doesn’t have to be. Please read the attached brochure to learn about a few simple actions every Designer can take that will have a direct positive influence on the practice in our own communities and as a whole.


Know how to talk about what you do as an Interior Designer and look for opportunities to share that knowledge with others.


Keep up with current best practices and stay involved in the conversation.


Understand how the legal recognition of Interior Design impacts the profession, how it applies in other states and what it could mean for our state.




 Join us for a bite at the new Industrious space in Madison for this workshop as  John Uzee shares tips for portfolios, interviews,  networking, mentors and your first year on the  job.  Space is limited to the first 15 registrants - secure your spot today and register now.  Free for members, $5 for non-member students!

Advocacy - Sign the Petition

Wisconsin has had an interior design law since 1995, with no major changes to that law since then. Through the cooperative efforts of IIDA Wisconsin and ASID Wisconsin, we’re hoping to build support to improve it.  By signing the petition, you not only show your support for the interior design profession, but are also signing up to receive important upcoming news about any advocacy issues in Wisconsin.

Please click here to sign a petition to show your support for the interior design profession in Wisconsin! 

Every interior designer should be an advocate for their profession. This simple step of signing a petition allows you to make your voice heard and be the first to receiveupdates about legislative issues in Wisconsin.
