Shirley Hammond, Alabama Interior Designer, Presented with NCIDQ's 2008 Tregre Award
December 4, 2008

WASHINGTON, DC - The National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) presented the Louis S. Tregre Award to
Shirley Hammond during the 2008 Annual Council of Delegates meeting last month in Kansas City, Missouri. The award
recognizes an individual for outstanding volunteer service at the grassroots level in support of the NCIDQ's mission to
protect the health, life safety and welfare of the public by establishing standards of competence in the practice of interior

The award was created in 1991 to honor the memory of Louis Tregre, a founding director and first president of NCIDQ. He

"The power of what NCIDQ can do to transform the built environment is just beginning," Hammond told the assembled
delegates. "NCIDQ may be the very catalyst for saving our planet through protecting the public by testing, for example,
interior design knowledge of renewable, sustainable and green design. NCIDQ is the model for the United States and Canada
and therefore, the model for the world. Qualified interior designers represent the best in the world and have the opportunity
to lead the world into better places, safer places--quality spaces."
Presenting the award, NCIDQ President Sandra Friend said, "Shirley's persistence and determination as a champion for the
public's safety captured the attention of lawmakers in Alabama when she was a founding member of the coalition that wrote
interior design practice legislation. She was tireless in her commitment and has shown that same dedication in her
volunteer activities with NCIDQ. She continues to speak with legislators, professionals and students about NCIDQ as the
benchmark of professionalism for interior designers. When asked to assist, Shirley's first response is always 'How can I
help?' This sort of on-the-ground spirit embodies the spirit of Louis S. Tregre's original vision for NCIDQ."

money to renew your membership and allow you to divide the overall dues amount across 12 months. You may sign up for this
program either when you renew online or via the mailed invoice. The debit will continue until you notify ASID in writing that you
would like it to stop.

Beyond the monthly debit option, below are a few special statuses and incentives that may apply. To take advantage of these
opportunities or for more options contact ASID Customer Service at

    you. Dues are $250 annually and the status must be renewed each year.

     three years across the lifetime of their membership. The dues rate is one half of the full dues rate.

AIDC Proposes New Legislation and Opposition Rises

The Alabama Interior Design Coalition is currently working on new proposed interior design legislation for this
legislative session. This new legislation is in the process of being negotiated with various entities and is
constantly evolving; however, it will resolve the issues that prompted unfavorable verdicts in the court system,
and will also reconcile the concerns of those who opposed our current law (see below). Although this new
legislation makes numerous concessions, there is still active opposition to any form of interior design legislation in
the State of Alabama. Once again, we find our profession under attack by the same group we have seen in the
past. Many in this group do not understand our current law or the proposed legislation, and are only going on what
is told to them by their more aggressive members. While certain persons in this group are determined to see the
licensure of interior designers disappear in Alabama others seem to be more understanding once the law is
properly explained. One elected official who recently voted against our legislation stated the reason she voted
negatively was because of the letters and calls she received from the opposition in her district. It is time for all
concerned interior designers and citizens to take action in support of protecting the health, safety and welfare of

The opposition's main argument is that interior designers do not affect the health, safety, and welfare of the public
and do not need to be regulated. It has been shown that furnishings and finishes
are major contributors to accelerants and toxic gases in deadly fires, so this is     … interior designers do

ONLY defense against what goes on down at the State House on a daily basis. This is simply a necessary function
in today's business environment as none of us can afford to leave our real jobs to watch our backs down at the
State House 24/7 - and that is what it takes. AIDC membership is only $35.00. If you are not already a member,
please fill in the attached form and mail to the AIDC address on the form. They also will appreciate any extra
donations, which go to pay the lobbyist and the attorney who help us protect our licensure and write and
interpret legislation.

Following are bullet points to explain the new 2009 proposed Interior Design bill:
•This law only applies to Licensed Interior Designers to establish code-required credentials for seal and submission of
construction documents on projects under 5001 square feet, and/or who are business owners in partnership with architects
or professional engineers.
•The title “Interior Designer” or “Designer” is not restricted.
•It will not affect the right of NKBA members to practice their profession.
•It will not affect right of those who are interior designers to practice their profession.
•The title “Interior Designer” in the previous 2001 law is amended to “Licensed Interior Designer” (LID) in the new
legislation. The definition has been revised to show the technical aspects of our profession. The term Interior Designer is
too broad and cannot be protected.
•The State Board will now be The Alabama Board for Licensed Interior Designers.
•The language in the proposed legislation has been condensed into a statute that is more easily understood and easier to
navigate. It also addresses the legislature and Supreme Court’s instruction regarding the rights of allied professions.

                                                                                                          Saturday 10:00am-12:00pm

                    Description:Daylight comes either direct from the sun or indirectly from the sky. Either way interior designers can utilize the
                    beneficial effects of daylight for their clients’ advantage and save electrical energy use. In this interactive workshop, interior

                    designers will explore the causes and the cures for too little daylight, which include architectural, interior, and landscape, and
                    lighting schemes. In other cases, daylight is too hot and glaring. Interior designers will explore the geometry of sun-control
                    related to the altitude and azimuth of the sun. And learn what they can specify inside and out to ameliorate the sun’s effects.
                    Too little or too much daylight affects our use of electricity for either needing electric lighting during the day in order to see
                    and/or requiring air conditioning to remove sun’s heat in order to have a comfortable interior environment. Both conditions
                    put demands on electric production and exacerbate global warming. Interior designers can lead the way to magically manipu-
                    late daylight, letting the genie out of the bottle for everyone’s benefit!

                 “The New ADA Guidelines: What you need to know!”                                                         2:30-

                 Instructor: Donna Kirby, ASID Distinguished Speaker                           IDCEC #7924 / Subj. Code # 6.1 / 0.2 CEU
                    Description: The focus for this class is on ADA Guidelines and ANSI A117.1 for building interiors. This class covers the changes
                    that were made with the Revision of the Americans with Disabilities Act, July 2004, and compares it to the ANSI documents
                    that are part of the 2006 International Building Code. It covers a brief history of accessible building codes and the general
                    building blocks needed for updated reach ranges, restroom clearances, and signage. The new ADA format is also reviewed and
                    discussed along with the inclusion of the Architectural Barriers Act. The class explains which jurisdictions have already
                    adopted the new ADA guidelines, which rules can be used immediately without adoption and which will have to wait for the
                    adoption of the building codes. If you do government design work or use the International Building Code 2003 or 2006, this
                    class is a must.
