Interior Designers of Canada restructures

Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) has undergone a restructuring of its organization to strengthen its role as the voice of interior design.

The restructuring moves IDC from a seven-member organization of provincial associations to an association representing nearly 3,000 individual interior designers across the country, and strengthens the association’s relationship with manufacturers and suppliers.

Susan Wiggins, who has been executive director for the Association of Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) for nine years and has served as acting executive director of IDC for the last several years, will become executive director of IDC. She will lead a team of nine staff out of the Association’s Toronto office.

IDC members also elected a new board of management to be lead by President David Hanson, who is a graduate of Ryerson University’s Interior Design program in Toronto and practises in Vancouver. Joining Hanson on the board are Donna Assaly, of Alberta, as president-elect and Jenny Mueller Garbutt, of British Columbia, as past president. Representatives from each of the seven provincial associations that formed the former IDC sit on the board as directors. They are: Ada Bonini, British Columbia; Adele Bonetti, Alberta; Aandra Currie Shearer, Saskatchewan; Stephen Lamoureux, Manitoba; Clinton Hummel, Ontario; Monique Leger, New Brunswick; and Carolyn Wood, Nova Scotia.

Another five directors represent the Association’s membership. David Gibbons of Ontario and Michelle Du of Manitoba represent the professional membership. Ron Hughes from Teknion represents Industry members, Jessica Gozdzierski of New Brunswick represents Intern members, and Janice Smith of Alberta represents Education members. Two non-voting members round out the board. Trevor Kruse of Ontario is the IIDEX Liaison; and Denis Chouinard of Quebec is a Provisional Director. Susan Wiggins, IDC’s executive director, is an ex officio member of the board.
