The 2015 AIGA Nominating Committee is now recruiting national board nominees for five open seats for the July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2018 term.
Nominations must be submitted by Friday, December 12, 2014
The 2015 Nominating Committee, chaired by Heather Olson (AIGA Minnesota), is currently reviewing nominations for four open seats for the July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2018 term. A fifth seat will be occupied by Su Mathews Hale, president elect. Three of the four open seats are available for unrestricted nominations, since one must be filled by a candidate for the treasurer’s position.
Once ratified by the current board of directors, sustaining-, design leader- and trustee-level members will have the opportunity to vote on the slate of nominees in Spring 2015.
Copies of the nomination form must be completed, signed and submitted digitally by December 12, 2014 to Liv Eck, 164 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10010.
The nomination process is designed to identify, encourage and
enlist the active participation of dedicated professionals in the
service of AIGA at a leadership level. The procedures outlined
below assist the nominating committee in conducting a fair and
equitable evaluation, deliberation and recommendation process for
all nominated candidates.
The committee consists of AIGA members who are not on the board
to make sure member interests are represented in the new
nominations and that the national board is not self-perpetuating (a
weak point of many association boards). This process is an open,
inclusive one; anyone who completes the nomination form will be
The 2015 nominating committee:
The slate of nominees should include a minimum of 20 percent of
racial/ethnic minorities, in order to, over time, ensure that the
board reflects the population at large. Similarly, the slate should
show balance in terms of gender and geographical diversity.
For the board to fulfill its potential, it is valuable to have a
variety of skill, experience and interest levels represented.
Considering the roles and contributions of departing board members
and the current needs of the organization, it would be useful to
have board members who can each represent at least one of the
following attributes and preferably more than one:
There are two ways to be nominated for national AIGA board
Each nominee is expected to download and complete the same form
so that the nominating committee may consider the credentials of
all candidates individually, as well as comparatively. Read the
Board Roles and Responsibilities to better understand the
nomination process and the responsibilities of elected board
members. If you have questions about this form or the nomination
process, please contact the chairperson of this year's nominating
The nomination form is designed to help the nominee prepare and
present his or her qualifications in a consistent and orderly
manner. The application process is thorough to assure that the
committee has the same information on all candidates, recognizes
the work nominees have done at the chapter level and reveals the
level of commitment of the nominee.

Section: About AIGA -
The board of directors is an elected body that holds the institution in trust for AIGA members past, present and future.
Five nominees for AIGA’s national board of directors were selected by a nominating committee, based on recommendations from AIGA members, chapter leadership and design opinion leaders. Members at the Trustee, Design Leader and Sustaining Member levels approved the slate in April 2014.
AIGA chapters fulfill AIGA’s mission at the local level, supporting members through organizing projects and events to educate, inform and connect designers.

Design feedback shouldn't be a painful process. In fact, if it's a painful process, I'd say someone's not doing it right. The most successful projects are usually ones with a collaborative workflow between a well-balanced team of designers, developers, project management, and of course — clients! It's essential to have a healthy feedback process, in which the client knows exactly what feedback is most helpful for the next round of revisions, and the designers and developers know how to translate and solve those problems.
I know, I know, both web teams and people who have hired web teams are out there groaning right now (we get it, and this isn't a soapbox). Everyone has had their fair share of difficult projects and poor communication, but it doesn't have to be that way. In efforts to improve the feedback process for web clients and design teams alike, I'm writing this two-part article about How to Give Good Web Design Feedback, and Turning Client Feedback Into Your Best Work.
