The board of directors is an elected body that holds the
institution in trust for AIGA members past, present, and future,
with a guiding principle of leaving the institution stronger at the
end of each director's term than it was at the beginning. The
board's special responsibility is to see that the executive
director, who serves as CEO, is managing the association in a
manner that responds to the expressed needs of members, and
anticipated needs of the future profession. The board does not
serve in an operational or managerial role.
Confirmed board members of AIGA are committed to a variety of obligations and responsibilities. Most of these are traditional in nature and are listed here. However, one obligation warrants special attention. Each board member is expected to maintain an AIGA membership at the Trustee or Design Leader level for the duration of his or her term.
In general, the following guidelines are recommended for
nonprofit organizations to reduce liability by strengthening the
accountability of the board.
AIGA’s board is elected by the entire professional membership
and plays a crucial role in determining the mission of AIGA.
