IIDA Louisville Lexington City Center is pleased to welcome Thom Banks, Executive Director of the Council for Interior Design Qualification, or CIDQ, to Kentucky!  Thom has been with CIDQ since 2016 and is responsible for CIDQ’s overall strategic and operational leadership.  He serves as the primary spokesperson to advance the organization’s global mission to establish, maintain and assess standards for competence in the interior design profession. 

The interactive discussion will target students, young designers as well as experienced design professionals as he explains how CIDQ’s qualifications can advance designers’ careers.  He will offer insight into understanding the new NCIDQ exam format.  For those designers already NCIDQ Certified, Thom will offer support on how to promote your credentials to clients, consultants and the general public.  

The discussion will conclude with Q&A and a great opportunity to learn more about the profession around the United States and Canada!
