Teknion Supports Quality Assurance for Interior Design Education

Teknion recently hosted the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) Board of Directors’ spring business meeting at its showroom in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, IL. CIDA’s Standards Committee met concurrently in the space and joined the Board in order to report progress on the Standards Development Project and to select participants for the fall 2014 Future Vision session.

Partnership from industry leaders such as Teknion is critical to the ongoing success of CIDA’s mission to ensure a high quality in interior design education.
