Board Nominations

Nationally, AIGA mandates that members participate directly in governance of the organization. One of the best ways to do so is by serving on your local board of directors. To date, all AIGA Orlando board members have been solicited by nominations or recruited after participating in events and/or serving on committees.

So how does this relate to you?

Until Friday, August 15th, AIGA Orlando will be soliciting nominations for new board members. By nominating yourself or another deserving AIGA member, you can directly guide the activities of our chapter! Serving as a chapter board member is one of the best ways to benefit from your membership. Serving provides deeper connections to the organization abroad, enables you develop or utilize your leadership skills.

What happens after you submit your nomination(s)?

More information will be provided at our next board/community meeting on August 5th, 2014 for all nominees; participation is strongly encouraged. A Nominating Committee will then review and discuss nominees and recommend a slate for membership approval. The Nominating Committee consists of the current president and the other board of directors.

Being A Director

The Board of Directors meet monthly to communicate, strategize, plan events, and manage other initiatives of our chapter. They are a group of diverse professionals who develop ways to bring value to our members by providing great programs, events and resources to the Orlando design community. There are 5 areas of focus of the chapter: Membership, Programming, Communication, Education, and Partnership. No matter where your interests lie, we can find a place for you and your passion.
