Cameron Stiles honored with the Keith Hooks Volunteer Excellence Award

Cameron Stiles, CID, FASID, a Principal with KSA Interiors in Richmond, VA has been honored with the Keith Hooks Volunteer Excellence Award in recognition of her outstanding contributions to the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA).

Cameron Stiles has been involved with CIDA leadership in a variety of capacities for 13 years. Cameron is currently serving her second term on CIDA’s Accreditation Commission and chaired the Commission in 2008 and 2009. Cameron also was a member of CIDA’s Site Visitor Committee, a working group that successfully developed a new system for site visitor training. Cameron helped plan and deliver three consecutive site visitor training sessions from 2006-2008. Additionally in 2008, Cameron served on CIDA’s Accreditation Process Task Force. This task force developed the accreditation framework (process, procedure, and support services) that led to the effective and seamless implementation of Professional Standards 2009.

Continuing her high level of engagement, Cameron also served on a committee that developed new training materials, methods, and mechanisms to orient CIDA site visitors to Professional Standards 2009. She was a key planner and presenter of CIDA’s 2009 Site Visitor Training Workshop. In 2010, Cameron served as the Commission liaison to the Standards Committee. Prior to her outstanding service on the Accreditation Commission, Cameron participated as a CIDA site visitor and visiting team leader, conducting eleven site visits to interior design programs seeking CIDA accreditation.

CIDA established the Keith Hooks Volunteer Excellence Award as a legacy to former Director Keith Hooks whose 20+ years of volunteer leadership immeasurably impacted thousands of students in CIDA-accredited programs. “Cameron Stiles’ many contributions to CIDA are substantial and worthy of this highest honor,” states Robert Wright, Board Chair. “Her commitment to strengthening CIDA accreditation is clear, and the quality of her volunteer leadership exceptional. The Board is very pleased to recognize her achievements with this award.”

Over 130 interior design educators and practitioners currently volunteer for CIDA. Only one Keith Hooks Volunteer Excellence Award is presented annually.
