Communication is at the heart of human interaction, and it can make or break a business. Client communication may be one of the single most important factors in building your business. How you connect with clients has the ability to turn one off jobs into repeat clients, referrals, and raving testimonials.

Why the extra $3?

One Bill at a Time is a campaign to raise awareness and resources for Interior Design Advocacy in the New England Region. By adding three dollars to each event hosted by IIDA NE, we remind ourselves that advancing our profession is the core mission of our Organizations and, with small individual contributions throughout our community, we can make a large impact*.

*At the conclusion of each calendar year, all funds raised will be distributed to New England states with active advocacy initiatives in direct proportion to the percent of Chapter membership residing in each state. We dedicate this campaign to the individuals that achieved interior design legislation in New England states and paved the way for the future of our profession, One Bill at a Time.
