***Become a Licensed Interior Designer in New Mexico***

As an NCIDQ certificate holder, you exemplify a commitment to practicing at the highest level of professionalism in interior design industry. As the environment in which we work continues to evolve, we support the right of interior designers to practice to the fullest extent of the profession.

In New Mexico, the statute for interior design licensure was fought for and achieved in 1989, and has come under review and threat over the years. The statute and the New Mexico Interior Design Board have been maintained through the support of interior designers and professional organizations.

Unfortunately, the number of NM licensees has decreased over the years due to relocation, retirement, and various other factors. In order to keep our voice in the State of New Mexico, we need to increase the number of licensees and stand together to support our profession, one that impacts the health, safety, and welfare of the public.

If you practice in New Mexico, we encourage you, as an NCIDQ certificate holder, to take your commitment one step further by becoming a licensed interior designer in the state. We hope that you will join your peers as a proud NM licensee.

If you have any questions on the licensure qualifications or process, contact:
