Are you interested in playing an active role in the design community? Do you enjoy being a part of AIGA, and want to play a bigger role in Orlando’s chapter? Join the AIGA Orlando board!
Our chapter’s programming year runs from August 2018 to June 2019 and there are exciting plans in the works for it. However, to make even greater things happen for our community we need the help of talented individuals like you, from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines.
Benefits of being on the board.
Serving on the AIGA Orlando board is the perfect way to be hands on with the planning and strategic direction of our chapter. If there’s a speaker, workshop, or specific type of content you’d like to see offered in Orlando, being a part of the board is THE best way to make that happen. It’s also a fun way to connect with local and nationally recognized designers, and make connections with other local organizations. Beyond that, your time on the board will help you grow professionally in leadership, and in other ways, you may not have the opportunity to explore in your daily profession.
