Appellations

IIDA Members in good standing are encouraged to use the IIDA appellation after your name. Using your IIDA designation shows your clients, employers, and peers that you are deeply committed to your profession. It also demonstrates to prospective employers and clients that you have the qualifications that give you an edge.

REMEMBER

  • Capitalize IIDA; do not separate with periods or other punctuation

  • List IIDA first when you include multiple appellations; alphabetize other appellations (ex: John Smith, IIDA, AIA)
