About the Coalition Join LCID's Email Newsletter
2011 marks the twelfth anniversary of the founding of the Louisiana Coalition for Interior Design, our political action committee, or PAC. The Coalition, proposed by Dan Bouligny in 1986, was formally established in 1999 to support legislative efforts relative to our profession. Now is an appropriate time to join forces in reinvigorating LCID, an independent, empowering organization that allows unaffiliated interior designers as well as ASID and IIDA members, industry supporters, educators, students, and friends to make a difference at the grass roots level for the common good of the interior design profession in Louisiana.
As you may be aware, organized and well-funded opposition to interior design legislation has posed significant obstacles to the interior designer's right to practice elsewhere in our country. We in Louisiana have been fortunate thus far; other states have lost their footing in the face of persistent challenges. An effective Louisiana Coalition for Interior Design can help keep us all proactive in defining and strengthening our profession.
Interior designers have gained respect as professionals and continue to do so, but your help is essential if our Coalition is to carry out its fundamental mission of supporting the Louisiana interior designer's right to practice.
LCID's current goals include outreach programs in the metropolitan areas of our state, maintaining communication via a quarterly newsletter, educating our state's newest interior designers about our legislation, and most importantly, allowing members statewide participation in the political process. As our PAC, the Louisiana Coalition for Interior Design must continue to support those Louisiana lawmakers who have worked to strengthen the professional status of interior designers. And we must enhance this effort by retaining the services of an effective, professional advocate to serve as our voice in Baton Rouge.
To achieve its goals, LCID must be funded through your contributions. We urge you to join our work to keep the bar high on our profession. Your bi-yearly membership contribution will help ensure our foothold as qualified, licensed, registered interior designers charged with the health, safety, and welfare of the public in Louisiana.
