The Maine Interior Design Association (MIDA) was created in 1992 with a mission to act legislatively, as a single voice for Maine’s Interior Design professionals. MIDA is committed to advocating issues related to our Title Act, and promoting the health, safety and welfare of the public.
In 1993, Maine passed a Title Act regulating the use of the title Certified Interior Designer. A person certified to use the title ‘Maine Certified Interior Designer’ is required to meet the requirements of:
Education: meet education and experience requirements determined by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ); and
Examination: successfully complete the examination administered by the NCIDQ.
MIDA is a non-profit organization. Our membership dues and fundraising efforts provide us funding to have continued representation in the Maine legislation. Our lobbyist monitors our Title Act as well as other proposed bills that may directly or indirectly influence our profession.
Our organization continues to grow each year in membership and community involvement. MIDA contributes annually to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland and has also volunteered to decorate coaches for the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad’s Polar Express.
MIDA is dedicated to sustaining our mission of acting legislatively, as a single voice on behalf of Maine Interior Designers, educating the public about Interior Design and supporting our membership with networking opportunities.
