Because the State of Texas licenses interior designers, all our health and safety is ensured. Licensed interior designers, unlike decorators, “must have a degree, experience, and pass a national exam.” Unfortunately, prominent voices in the Texas legislature, and among candidates for statewide office, regularly threaten to abolish professional licensure, in a move they deem “deregulation.”
This story from Dallas’s WFAA is helping to bring some awareness to this important issue.
The Texas Association of Interior Designers represents the interests of licensed designers in the state capital. We fully support TAID, and we hope you will too, not only through donation, but by sending a note to your state senator and representative, saying that you support the licensing of interior designers in Texas.
Find your legislators here and send them an email or mail them even a note by mail.
And a very fun way to support TAID is to attend the annual art sale and fundraiser “Lot75″ that we host right here at Skyline Art Services. See you here on September 18!
