Recognizing the power of the volunteer spirit

Published by Sarah Bradbury, January 20, 2015.

At IDC, we know how important it is to give back the interior design community and we appreciate the effort put forth to make a difference and affect positive change. Volunteering is about working towards making a meaningful contribution to advance the profession.

With this in mind, we are pleased to share that Heather Robertson Corrigan is being honored with CIDA’s Keith Hooks Volunteer Excellence Award that recognizes volunteers whose service and leadership have had a significant impact on CIDA’s mission. IDC would like to congratulate Heather and thank her for her efforts on behalf of the profession.

Heather is a founding member of the Association of Interior Designers of Nova Scotia (IDNS) and has served in all executive positions, including President. She also served as a Director at IDC from 2000-05. Perhaps her most important contribution to the profession in Nova Scotia was her lobby effort over many years to make the Nova Scotia Interior Design Practice Act and Regulations a reality in 2003. To date, Nova Scotia is the only province in Canada to legislate public practice rights for interior designers.

As Heather moves on from her position on the CIDA Board, Caroline Hughes of figure3 in Toronto has been appointed to serve in her place as IDC liaison to CIDA.
