The Maine Interior Design Association (MIDA) was created in 1992 with a mission to act as a single voice for Maine’s Interior Design professionals. MIDA is committed to advocating for Maine's industry design professionals and their credentials as it relates to the Maine State Title Act.
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’ must meet the requirements of education, experience, and examination determined by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ).
This Title Act ensures that Maine's Certified Interior Designers are qualified and able to promote health, safety, and welfare of the public through their work.
MIDA is a non-profit organization. Our membership dues allow us to have continued representation at the Maine Legislature. Our lobbyist monitors the Title Act as well as other proposed bills that may directly or indirectly influence our profession.
Our organization continues to grow each year in both membership and community involvement. MIDA contributes annually to non-profits across our community including Habitat for Humanity, The Center for Grieving Children, and the ACE Mentor Program.
MIDA is dedicated to sustaining our mission of acting a strong voice on behalf of Maine Interior Designers, educating the public about Interior Design and supporting our members with networking opportunities.
