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.
