We have a new location and a start date for the Fall NCIDQ study group!
Study group for the IDFX, IDPX and the Practicum portions of the NCIDQ Exam will begin Wednesday August 5 and be held each week on Wed from 5:30pm -7:00pm through October exam week at:
9 Sunnen Dr. Suite 100
St Louis, MO 63143
(next door to Gray Design)
Regular attendance in the study group is appreciated for the benefit of all.
Be sure to obtain and bring the 6th Edition of the Interior Design Reference Manual by David Kent Ballast (the older 5th Edition is also acceptable). If studying for the IDFX and/or IDPX, you may start reading chapters before our study group begins if you have the time.
For the Practicum, you may bring any study materials you feel worthwhile, but we will discuss options at the first session on Aug 5.
Thank You to Interior Investments who has generously donated their space to accommodate both types of studying!

Thank you to all who came out and participated in our First Annual IIDA Advocacy Fundraising event last Tuesday evening. The event was a great success and the money raised will help fund the Advocacy Day trip to the Capital on Tuesday, April 28th. There is space still available if you want to join us.
Highlights from Tuesday night were the amazing people that braved the crowd and stepped on stage to show us their talent. A huge THANK YOU to Sarah Schultz, Mike Silverman, Clara Garner, David Smith and Marty Fox.
A special shout out to the underwriters for the evening. Without them the event would not have been as successful.
