              Creating a long-term vision for SBID

              In order to meet our strategic objectives to support members, SBID define clear goals to continue our wider mission of title recognition for the interior design industry, whilst acting in the public interest and maintaining public confidence in interior design by promoting our professional and ethical standards. The decisions made by designers in practice impact on the built environment and all industry stakeholders, therefore the protection of consumers is paramount to SBID’s long-term vision.

              Boards, Standing Committees and??Councils

              Discover how our world leading sector is helping Britain thrive in its global role and acting as a vital employer, enabler and investor in regions across the UK. We encouraged our members to engage in our events and councils. We connected with industry through designers, manufacturing and governments to influence interior designers in 71 countries.

              Executive Board

              Founded with Trustees and a clunky governance system in 2009 it quickly became apparent that the system was too restrictive for a forward-facing body. The Board unanimously agreed to amend processes, retaining membership rights but providing the nimbleness required to make swift, measured and well-advised decisions.

              In 2013 an independent secretariat was created. The Executive Board is SBID’s governing body. The Board is responsible for oversight of SBID activities, it agrees strategy, budgets and policies. It delegates general operating authority ?to staff, councils and committees. It’s members set standards to protect the wider public through our innovative and pioneering strategies. It represents the wider effects and impact of both good and bad design on communities, countries, business and individual wellbeing.

              Presidents

              An admired leader of a design genre holds a one year honorary title of SBID President

              Members may propose a leader of a design genre to hold the title, of Honorary SBID President.?The vote will be polled at the Members Annual General Meeting.

              Each SBID President is an independent trailblazer, championing industry improvement and design excellence. A President has the skillset and tenacity to further the vision of SBID in setting and raising standards of the profession of interior design.

              Each term is supported by the immediate Past President for continuity. The President Elect supports the President in office.
