2016 Board Nominations

We invite you to participate in our open call for nominations for the 2016 AIGA Philadelphia Board

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, July 15, 2016

What is involved?

Commitment: We are looking for community members who can commit to a two-year agreement to lead and serve the AIGA Philadelphia design community through volunteering time in support of chapter initiatives. This commitment can be an extremely rewarding experience, but can also be demanding—it necessitates hard work and dedication of time.

Leadership: In this role, you will be trusted to be a face and voice of the design community in Philadelphia through your leadership service. This involves leading a committee of AIGA volunteers, attending events, greeting members, recruiting future members, meeting with partners, networking and always advocating for the value of AIGA.

Why Serve?

Being a board member is more than responsibility and something productive to do in your spare time—it’s a commitment to our design community in Philadelphia. It’s the dedication to see design continue to grow, adapt, thrive and improve in our city. It’s the desire to bring new initiatives, speakers, designers, and inspiration to our membership. It’s the feeling you get after a successful event, making a rewarding connection, or nerding out with some fellow designers.

We are here to create a community for designers, illustrators, developers, photographers, project managers, writers, design enthusiasts, and the like. And we’re looking for others with the same mission in mind.

All nominees will be contacted for more information.
