            AIGA is not recruiting conference associates for the 2024 AIGA Design Conference. AIGA will recruit current members to serve as volunteer conference associates to help in on-site event management at the 2025 AIGA Design Conference in Los Angeles. Conference associates work approximately 30 hours throughout the conference, and are able to attend conference sessions for free when not working. 

              If you prefer to register by mail or pay offline with the assistance of an AIGA representative, an invoice can be created by request: please email AIGA_registrar@aiga.org; a $25 per-person conference registration processing fee applies.

                  For the 2024 AIGA Design Conference, we're seeking proposals that resonate with our theme for this year: "MARGINS." Margins represent spaces of opportunity, challenge, and innovation. Whether it's standing out in a crowded market, centering marginalized communities, embracing experimentation and failure, or redefining success, Margins encapsulates a spectrum of possibilities for design.

                  We invite industry professionals, educators, and graduate students to submit proposals that connect with this theme.
                  Proposals are due May 15, 2024. You can submit a proposal here.
