Interior Designers Institute is a private interior design college, which was founded in 1984 in Corona del Mar, California. The steady growth of the college can be attributed in part to its reputation for excellence, the need for a high caliber private college and its location in the heart of Orange County, California. Orange County is unique in terms of affluence, progressiveness and overall acceptance of the importance of interior design. Design opportunities abound in the area, which has a multitude of interior design firms, as well as its own design center, Laguna Design Center.

The BIA Baldy View Chapter mission is to promote growth of the building industry through representation of its members and educating both the industry and the community at the local level. In addition, the Baldy View Chapter shall maintain a presence and influence on industry-related issues at regional, state, and national levels. Earlier this decade, the homebuilding industry contributed more than $60 billion a year to the state's economy and generated 525,000 jobs, but the sharp downturn in housing construction has since cost the state’s economy $27 billion and 300,000 jobs. That’s why the Baldy View Chapter is today focused on efforts to help jumpstart the industry, such as the recently enacted homebuyer tax credit, and to oppose proposals to make building homes for California’s growing population even more expensive and difficult.
