2013 AIGA Colorado Call For Nominations

AIGA Colorado, the local chap­ter of the nation’s old­est and largest pro­fes­sional asso­ci­a­tion for design, is cur­rently seek­ing nom­i­na­tions for its open board posi­tions, effec­tive April 1st. We’re look­ing for moti­vated vol­un­teers to help us pur­sue our mis­sion of advanc­ing design as a pro­fes­sional craft, strate­gic advan­tage, and vital cul­tural force.

Ready to lend a hand? Fill out the form NOW

The incom­ing vol­un­teer board will play a piv­otal role in reshap­ing AIGA Colorado to be a leader within the Colorado design com­mu­nity and beyond. Serving on the board often enriches the per­sonal and pro­fes­sional lives of vol­un­teers, and pro­vides board mem­bers with the oppor­tu­nity to meet accom­plished indus­try pro­fes­sion­als as well as net­work with up-and-coming talent.

Board nom­i­nees need not be cur­rent AIGA mem­bers at the time of nom­i­na­tion, but any nom­i­nees elected will be required to join and main­tain their mem­ber­ship for the dura­tion of a two-year term. Chair posi­tions must join at the Contributor level or higher; Director-level posi­tions and above must be Supporting mem­bers at a min­i­mum. (For more infor­ma­tion about mem­ber­ship lev­els, visit aiga​.org/​b​e​l​ong.)

Self-nomination is per­mit­ted and encouraged.
