Join the Central IL City Center of the IIDA Illinois Chapter in supporting NAMI Ending the Silence, a mental health education and suicide prevention program that destigmatizes teenage mental illness and empowers them to ask for help. The program was designed by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and is delivered locally in McLean County by Project Oz in collaboration with NAMI Mid Central IL and the McLean County Health Department.
The presentation will explore how the use of these products can benefit the architect/designer as well as the end client and general public.
Acoustics are as important as aesthetics in interior design. To design spaces with only the visual in
mind risks creating environments that are emotionally cold or functionally inadequate. What we hear
affects our unconscious, changing our moods, our behavior, and our performance. This course will
teach the basic reasons of why acoustics are important, how to discuss acoustic needs with a
fabricator, and how to pick textile products that will enhance acoustic and aesthetic goals.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is one of the most misunderstood elements of commercial design. Failing to design for ADA creates health and safety issues for the disabled and liability concerns for designers and owners. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to confidently discuss ADA requirements with a client so all parties can make informed decisions.
