AIGA relies on member volunteers to accomplish many activities
throughout the year. There are two ways to volunteer with the
Each AIGA chapter, as an independently chartered organization,
sets its own policies regarding volunteering for local events. AIGA
provides guidelines to help shape these chapter policies.
For larger events run by the national staff of AIGA, such as the
biennial design conference, the following guidelines apply:
AIGA's policy is to always provide an honorarium for design
projects as compensation. While we realize it is not set at market
rates, it recognizes that no design should be expected without
compensation. Volunteer designers are usually not required to do
work up front for free before a contract or project begins. Each
designer knows explicitly beforehand the terms we are able to
offer, which is meant as our demonstration that every designer's
work has significant value, knowing that there are both monetary
and non-monetary considerations in any project.
AIGA works with designers and firms to create promotional
materials including posters, event programs, event web sites, etc.
Designers typically send us a portfolio of their past work, then
have the opportunity to review a design brief and accept or decline
the project. At that time, a contract is executed with a commitment
to an honorarium, after which work on the project begins.
Implementation, such as printing costs, postage and paper, are
covered by AIGA and/or an interested sponsor.
The guidelines are as follows:
