Virginia Interior Design Advocacy
We are seeking DONATIONS.
Donations will support efforts to protect Certified Interior Designers’ right to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia. ASID/ CIDQ/ IIDA have banded together, under the Consortium for Interior Design, to hire a lobbying team from McGuire Woods Consulting to help us overcome interior design deregulation in Virginia once and for all. We were successful in defeating the 2023 legislation to deregulate but have been informed that another bill is forthcoming in the 2024 session to deregulate interior design, as well as, other professions. Unfortunately, professional dues are not enough to cover the unplanned expense of securing these lobbyists, and ASID VA is requesting donations, which will be earmarked specifically for lobbying fees to protect our profession.
Thank you for your support and contributions. Please note that donations to the Virginia Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers are NOT deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.

We are seeking WEBINAR PARTICIPANTS
McGuireWoods Consulting will host a webinar on July 20th at 8:30 a.m. to review the best ways to engage with key lawmakers and candidates for office on the issues facing the Certified Interior Designer community. Topics will include the most effective ways to contact an office, do’s and don’ts for discussing policy matters with decisionmakers, and how to host a site visit with legislators. The webinar will also preview this November’s elections and its potential consequences for the 2024 General Assembly session.
The Virginia Chapter encourages all members to attend.
