      Lifelong learning is critical for designers, and as design association, AIGA wants to help both design professionals and the profession. We heard from our community that professional development is valued more than anything else. We also learned from our research efforts that there are some non-design specific competency gaps that designers would need to close to best position themselves to advance their careers and the overall profession. AIGA is here to help with the launch of a new pilot program that offers courses for the creative professional. We will continue to improve and build on this initiative with a lean approach, along with your support and collaboration. We encourage you to join the pilot program and please share your insights as we aim to continue listening, learning, and improving this new membership benefit.
