This shared mission of advocating for design relevance and
leadership will take several forms. There will be a leadership
presentation, an AIGA Resource Center and a special presentation by
AIGA president Debbie Millman at the HOW Design Conference in June; a
quarterly webcast series on the subject of design relevance and
design leadership will begin in April; and a dedicated AIGA
leadership section on the HOW and Print websites will debut in
June. There will also be collaborative efforts at the AIGA chapter
level to advance the mission of relevance and leadership within
local design communities.

helping them to realize their talents and to advocate the value of
design among the media, the business community, public agencies and
the general public,” said Richard Grefé, executive director of

to further this shared mission. Collaborating on programs, events
and resources for designers only benefits the community at large
and will expand the role of design, today and in the future.”
