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.

NEW YORK—October 6, 2011. What is
the role of design in a rapidly shifting world? Next week hundreds of
professional designers, educators and design students will gather to
address this very question at the AIGA Design Conference,
taking place in Phoenix from October 13–15. The theme of this year’s
conference is “Pivot,” focusing on how design and designers are shifting
to address changes in society, the economy and culture.

New York—September 9, 2014. Today AIGA, the professional
association for design, announced the 2014 results of the “Justified:
AIGA Design Competition.” Design firms, in-house design departments,
design entrepreneurs and freelance designers submitted nearly 750 design
projects, making this the most competitive year for AIGA’s annual
design competition. After careful and considered review, the jury
recognized 19 submissions that successfully demonstrate the value of
design based on craft, methodology, execution and impact.
NEW YORK—August 5, 2014. Yathrib Ragsdale mentors minority, first generation, college bound students. Myles Thompson educates his college campus about African American art and culture. And
Kawing Ng manages a Meetup group called VolunteerNY to bring together people who share a common goal of giving back to the community. These talented and dedicated students are among 14 recipients of the 2014–2015 Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships, awarded each year to art and design college students who demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility.
NEW YORK—July 1, 2014. Today five board members and a new presidents council representative join the national board of directors
for AIGA, the professional association for design, following a national
search. Ken Carbone, John Luu, Christopher Simmons, Jill Spaeth, Paul Wharton and Elysia Syriac join the national board, and Su Mathews Hale has been elected to the president-elect position.
After much discussion throughout the entire design community, the national board
approved the sale of AIGA’s building in New York City. At this pivotal point in our history, the board
adopted a revised strategic framework which articulates four strategic focuses for the organization and outlines the process and timeline for funding decisions.
For Landor’s pro-bono program, Brand Aid, the design team created an entirely new visual system for Global Health Corps, a nonprofit fellowship
program with the mission to advance social justice through the health equity movement.
