  • Frederick Yocum commented on the article "What we heard: your voice on AIGA's future"

    This post brings a little more clarity. It must be difficult to frame a discussion to the membership which contains decisions which have personal as well as professional impact for some members. Writing as a member who is working out out in the provinces who only recently rejoined because of changes to membership fees made being one a reasonable proposition, I have never been to AIGA headquarters and though visits to New York happen, there is little implicit or explicit reason to visit the mothership. I have never been encouraged to put such a stop on my itinerary. There are no rooms like a decent gentlemen’s club for when you come up to town, would anyone welcome at the door with bun and a cup of tea? In short, from out here in the weeds, the headquarter has no sentimental and little practical value. The question for me is whether the capital freed up will be used well. Any shift that moves AIGA from a club to a hub or, even better, a hub of clubs seems to be a good thing in my book. Lead on, we can always fire you at the next election.

    For me, the simple question in this proposal is whether the physical presence in NYC be scaled back to enable the organization to put more resources into a dispersed organization. The major risk with conflating the choice selling the largest asset with being freed up to be more agile is that the capital unleashed may be squandered, if its use is not continually monitored and held accountable. Never the less, I go with this form of transformation.
