Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 6. Board of Registered Interior Design Professionals. There is created a Board of Registered Interior Design Professionals to be composed of persons designated from time to time by the Director, as follows:
        (a) For the first year, 5 persons, 4 of whom have
    
been interior designers for a period of 5 years or more who would qualify upon application to the Department under this Act to be registered interior designers, and one public member. After the initial appointments, each interior design member shall hold a valid registration as a registered interior designer. The Board shall annually elect a chairman.
        (b) Terms for all members shall be 3 years. For
    
initial appointments, one member shall be appointed to serve for one year, 2 shall be appointed to serve for 2 years, and the remaining shall be appointed to serve for 3 years and until their successors are appointed and qualified. Initial terms shall begin on the effective date of this Act. Partial terms over 2 years in length shall be considered as full terms. A member may be reappointed for a successive term, but no member shall serve more than 2 full terms.
        (c) The membership of the Board should reasonably
    
reflect representation from the various geographic areas of the State.
        (d) In making appointments to the Board, the Director
    
shall give due consideration to recommendations by national and state organizations of the interior design profession and shall promptly give due notice to such organizations of any vacancy in the membership of the Board. The Director may terminate the appointment of any member for any cause, which in the opinion of the Director, reasonably justifies such termination.
        (e) Three members shall constitute a quorum. A quorum
    
is required for all Board decisions.
        (f) The members of the Board shall each receive as
    
compensation a reasonable sum as determined by the Director for each day actually engaged in the duties of the office, and all legitimate and necessary expenses incurred in attending the meeting of the Board.

any action based upon any disciplinary proceedings or other activities performed in good faith as members of the Board.
