On February 13, several IIDA SoCal professional members joined the IIDA NoCal chapter to participate in an inspiring and effective Capitol Day in Sacramento. The primary purpose of the outreach opportunity was to communicate to our legislators, the importance of Advocacy to further advance the profession of Commercial Interior Design. In many cases, our legislators don’t know what the role of a commercial interior designer encompasses, nor do they fully understand the complexities of professional interior design services. The day was very positive in presenting typical project examples, answering questions and developing personal contact with our governmental representatives. The following article, written and published by Interiors and Sources covers the highlights of the day:
