The role of chapters and individual members is to
demonstrate a passion for design and the design profession through activities
that engage both the local community and, hopefully, an even larger audience.
AIGA has committed to a broad campaign to provide a suite of
tools that allows a volunteer membership organization to work effectively and
responsively, nationally and at the chapter level. The goal is for each chapter
to benefit from a common, robust infrastructure, so that fundamental ways of
supporting members are not dependent on the ebb and flow of volunteer interest
in the systems that make a membership organization work.
Our basic premise is that the creative diversity of the
design community should appear in the form of programming and content. As AIGA
continues to strengthen chapters, we also recognize that amplifying what
members and chapters are doing around the world often demonstrates more

feel like it is limited to his or her chapter; that AIGA feels like an
expression of the entire design profession, wherever it may be located; and
that AIGA serves as a model of a community of designers who have created an
organization that inspires designers and communicates the value of design to
