The AIGA Portland Board is an inclusive group of individuals working to advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force. We are constantly looking for motivated volunteers to help pursue our mission. Directors serve 2-year terms and are elected on a staggered schedule.

The Board plays a pivotal role in shaping AIGA Portland as a leader in the Portland design community and beyond. Serving on the Board will enrich your personal and professional life—Board members encounter regular opportunities to meet accomplished industry professionals and network with up-and-coming talent.

AIGA Membership at any level is required to serve on the Board, but not required to apply. You can view the membership rates or join by going here
