IIDA Chapter Awards

IIDA Chapter Awards

The IIDA Chapter Awards recognize outstanding chapter achievement, best practices, and program excellence. The awards celebrate the exceptional efforts and contributions IIDA Chapters make to the interior design profession.

The Chapter Awards are broken down into two components: a Chapter Benchmarking Assessment (CBA) and the Best Thing Ever (BTE) Award. Winners in each component will be selected separately, but your chapter must complete the assessment to be eligible to win BTE.
The CBA serves as a barometer for tracking, sharing, and celebrating chapter best practices and  annual accomplishments. Chapters who complete the assessment may earn IIDA Bronze, Silver, or Gold status, with unlimited winners in each tier.
Best Thing Ever (BTE) is your chapter’s crowning achievement of the past year. Up to four winners may be selected by the judges based on the merit of submissions.

Important Dates

Applications for the 2020-2021 Chapter Awards will open in late January 2021.
