Who should enroll

Group memberships make sense for design firms, agencies, and in-house divisions with three people or more. Your organization gets a great rate, and your employees enjoy all of the benefits of a Sustaining level membership. 

What is the cost

The pricing starts at $675 which includes the first three members. Additional employees may be added to the group at the special rate of $75 per member.

Please note: The minimum requirement to qualify as a group is three members from the same company. Memberships are non-transferable. If a group member leaves your employment during the group's membership cycle, adding a new member will require a $75 payment. All prices are in U.S. dollars.

How to enroll

Contact AIGA with your company details and a list of prospective group members. An AIGA representative will reach out to you with instructions for membership payment and activation.
