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.
