Why Might You Join AIGA?

Let’s boil it down into a few really important points, shall we?

You can be part of the thriving design community.
Whether you’re just starting out, well into your career, or changing careers into design, AIGA brings people together. You can get to know people in the DC area who share your interests and be part of an active community that supports your professional development.

You can attend lots (and lots) of events.
AIGA DC organizes dozens of events every year in the DC area, including conferences, salons, creative lunches, talks, panels, happy hours, labs, portfolio reviews, town halls, office hours and more. Members often get first dibs on registration and discounted tickets.

Let’s talk benefits …
You can post your portfolio to the member gallery, look for design jobs, attend webinars and courses, use business resources, get access to the member directory and salary surveys, even get discounts on Apple products and Lynda.com. Be sure to check out all of the great benefits.

It doesn’t cost much.
Memberships start at $50 per year. That’s crazy talk considering everything that AIGA offers. Be sure to check out the different levels of membership to see which fits you.

In a nutshell —
It’s worth it to join. And you can learn more about AIGA DC — plus our initiatives involving education, mentorship, inclusion and diversity — on our chapter website. Oh wait, you’re ready to join now? Let’s go!
