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.

Many thanks for your support of our profession and industry.
