Creating a long-term vision for SBID

The Executive Board is the heart of SBID; the principle decision makers of the organisation, who are responsible for working towards title recognition for the interior design industry, change accreditation policies and steering direction for The Society of British & International Design.

The Executive Board is committed to creating a unified approach to business decisions, listening to senior leaders and heads of department who provide feedback not only from internal discussions but also from SBID members. All decisions made by the Executive Board are based feedback as well as the latest research from the industry, stakeholders and consumers.
