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.
Membership is required to serve on the Board. If you are not yet a member, you can join here. Supporting level is recommended.
Should I become a Board Member (Director) or Committee Volunteer first?
