2017 MIDA Tasting Event
Hosted at Cellardoor Winery at the Point, more than 180 guests attended the annual MIDA Tasting Event which was held on the evening of May 18th.
The Maine Interior Design Association (MIDA) was created in 1992 with a mission to act legislatively, as a single voice for Maine’s Interior Design professionals. MIDA is committed to advocating issues related to our Title Act, and promoting the health, safety and welfare of the public.
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’ is required to meet the requirements of:
- Education: meet education and experience requirements determined by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ); and
- Examination: successfully complete the examination administered by the NCIDQ.
MIDA is a non-profit organization.
Their membership dues and fundraising efforts provide them funding to have continued representation in the Maine legislation. Their lobbyist monitors their Title Act as well as other proposed bills that may directly or indirectly influence their profession.
Their organization continues to grow each year in membership and community involvement. MIDA contributes annually to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland and has also volunteered to decorate coaches for the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad’s Polar Express.
MIDA is dedicated to sustaining our mission of acting legislatively, as a single voice on behalf of Maine Interior Designers, educating the public about Interior Design and supporting their membership with networking opportunities.
