About AIGA memberships

Join today to access networking through your local chapter and a wide variety of local and national programs and events. Your membership makes possible the activities of a national organization promoting design’s value on your behalf, and gives you access to professional development and exclusive benefits that can only be provided by an organization with the scale and reach of AIGA.

No matter who you are, you’re one of us.

As the largest professional association of designers in the world, AIGA is committed to advancing the value and impact of design, both locally and globally, and working together to inspire, support and learn from each other, at every stage of our careers.

Together we can do amazing things.

Choose the level that's right for you

About half of AIGA’s funding comes directly from membership dues, so the participation of every member really counts. Whether it’s a $50 contribution or a $500 Leader membership, the support of our members makes everything we do possible. And in turn, every participation level offers members not only a vast range of tangible benefits but some intangible ones as well – which can be some of the most meaningful aspects of being an AIGA member.

If you’re a student, just starting out, or maybe you’re a design fan who wants to support the design profession and what AIGA is doing, this is a great membership level to begin with. We’d love to have you!

Group memberships

Save by establishing a group membership for your firm, starting at just $675 for the first three members. Learn more about how to enroll or renew.

Billing options

At the Supporter level and above, you can pay for your annual membership in monthly installments. Regardless of the level you select, you can select the convenient “auto-renewal” option so that your membership continues each year without interruption. If one of these billing options is selected, you will be required to maintain your credit card information on file to remain eligible.

Membership policies

Individual memberships are annual and non-transferable.

The option of monthly payments is designed to make AIGA membership more accessible; it represents a commitment to a full year's membership, i.e., 12 payments over the course of a year. If all payments are not made (e.g., if a credit card expires and is not updated), your membership will be suspended and the option to select monthly payments will not be available to you in the future.

No refunds are available for membership dues.
