IDLNY Announces Winter Workshop Series Two Hands-On Sessions Cover Ncidq & Nyscid Certification

Coalition Supports Excellence In Design


First Session on NCIDQ Scheduled for January 18, 2017
Steelcase Showroom NYC

(New York, January 6, 2017) IDLNY, Interior Designers for Legislation in New York (a joint venture between IIDA, ASID NY Metro and the Decorator’s Club,) is pleased to announce a new series of workshops, including one CEU-accredited seminar, for design professionals. The first session, entitled, “NCIDQ Certification and How to Get There,” will take place on January 18, at 6pm in the Steelcase Showroom at Columbus Circle. Thom Banks, Executive Director of NCIDQ will speak, along with the presidents of each of the participating associations, on the importance of following through and taking the important NCIDQ exam.

The informative, hands-on evening event will offer insight into understanding the new NCIDQ exam, and cover best practices for certifying designers’ work experience and successful test-taking strategies.

According to Pam Durante, President of IDLNY, “This is such a critically important issue for our industry. These sessions will target both young designers that have recently graduated from accredited programs along with some experienced professionals that never completed the full certification process and need help to take their professional standing to the next level.  As a coalition of associations, we want to help make this process seamless and easy for all, as we all benefit from a greater number of accredited professionals across the state.”

The second session in the series, entitled “The Road to NYSCID – Registration’s Impact on the Interior Design Profession,” will be a CEU-accredited program and will take place on February 22, 2017. Experienced industry leaders will help to demystify the NYSCID process and assist with insight and strategy for navigating professional certification.

Interested attendees can register for both of the complimentary sessions at Updated information on the sessions will be shared at or through social media channels:
