Interior designers and decorators looking to make a name in Queensland may see their journey start by joining the Queensland Interior Decorators Association (QIDA).
QIDA is a state-wide organisation designed to welcome and nurture interior designers/decorators. The Association holds many trade activities to network each member while encouraging co-operation in the general property market.
Membership in the Association is possible across three levels, each with corresponding benefits for each licensed interior design professional signing up. The programme’s common denominators include a discount subscription package to Queensland Homes magazine and a chance to join training seminars. A fourth level, Honorary, is bestowed on seasoned professionals recognised by the QIDA management committee.
- Student – The Student membership programme is for aspiring interior designers currently in the midst of collegiate/university degree studies. If they are embarking on projects and are looking for vendors, this membership enables the bearer to incentives like a list of accredited vendors who could entitle benefits.
- Professional – Licensed interior designers/decorators who have at least Cert IV credentials or have undertaken a number of projects are welcome to apply for Professional membership.
- Associate – People networked in the interior decoration circuit can vie for Associate status. They can also receive invites to vendor product demonstrations plus take out advertising space in select trade publications at discount rates. Premium rates apply if they also want to promote at the QIDA website, http://www.qida.com.au/.
