Our Mission Statement
The purpose of the coalition is to advocate for the Interior Design Profession. We financially support our lobbyist who fights for our credentialing and the right to practice.
What is MDCID?
The Maryland Coalition of Interior Designers is a privately funded, self-sustaining, non-profit volunteer organization that represents, promotes and informs the positions of the Interior Design community. It is a unified voice for practicing interior designers regardless of affiliation. We closely monitor current and future legislation that may have an effect on our profession.
Through years of hard work we have earned the right to stamp and sign our drawings due to our experience, education and examination to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public.
By becoming a member/sponsor your support enables us to not only inform the public of our knowledge of building codes, critical and creative thinking, communication and technology for the purposes of improving the quality of life, increasing productivity and protecting the health, welfare and safety of the public, but also:
- Cover the annual cost of our lobbyist at the state level. Our sunset may not be until 2020 but it is fast approaching.

- Offer valuable accredited CEU’s.
- Visit schools and educate future professionals.
