The unusual strength of AIGA as a professional association is based on the engagement of its members and their eagerness to create vital communities locally, among themselves. AIGA encourages and welcomes the formation of viable local communities of AIGA members who can add local programming activities and interaction to the ethical standards, global networking and national communication about the value of design.
Establishing an AIGA chapter
is not an activity to be undertaken lightly. The strength of the
organization as a whole depends on each chapter creating and
sustaining an active, growing presence in its community. Programs,
activities and services to members at the local level are critical
to the growth of the organization nationally. To initiate a
chapter, the following steps must be taken.
This process has the potential to take several months and requires significant time and energy from the group’s leadership team. But when complete, it affects your community in highly significant and meaningful ways. If you have further questions, please contact us.

AIGA has members located around the world, but no international chapters. The reasons are partly practical and partly legal. AIGA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Chapters must be individually incorporated as nonprofits, and that's not really possible if they're not located in the United States. AIGA does have a model to welcome international affiliates, international interest groups that function similarly to chapters on the ground but have a different legal and financial relationship with AIGA. If you are interested in forming an international affiliate, contact Katie Baker, director of chapter development, AIGA.
NEW YORK—October 2, 2013. As designers have become more involved in strategy and more engaged with social impact in recent years, the love of craft and exquisite execution remain the necessary elements of successful design. Next week nearly 2,000 designers will gather in Minneapolis to celebrate all three dimensions of design at “Head, Heart, Hand,” a biennial design conference hosted by AIGA, the professional association for design.
