call to join - website + email

The nomination and application period for the board is open.
The deadline to apply is April 5, 2024.

Joining the AIGA DC Board of Directors

AIGA DC is run by an all-volunteer board of local members, composed of working designers, creatives, and media professionals. We are a motivated, passionate group of professionals who help shape and give back to the DMV creative community.

By nominating yourself or someone else, you can help guide the activities of our chapter!

Serving on the Board

Being a member of the AIGA DC Board means being an ambassador for AIGA to members and non-members.

What’s the commitment?

Joining the AIGA DC Board is a two-year commitment. You can also serve for longer (and many do). At the end of each year, board members may decide if they want to keep their current role or move to another open position.

Specific responsibilities vary depending on the team and the role and all board members are expected to:

  • Be (or become) members of AIGA members in good standing at any level. 
  • Attend all required planning retreats and monthly board meetings.
  • Attend major events (bonus: board members get into all our events for free!)
  • Be responsive on Slack and email (Slack is our main communications platform).

The weekly time commitment varies from role to role and throughout the year.

We welcome new members to the board in June and host training and planning retreats in July and August. Full board meetings, programming, and regular communications run  from September through early June.
