Board Member Nominations

AIGA Chattanooga is looking to expand our board of directors as we continue to advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. AIGA would not exist without passionate volunteers. Board members are volunteers as well, but as elected representatives of the chapter they have certain legal oversight of the chapter and its finances. Below are the roles and descriptions that are available for nomination. We are looking for candidates who are committed to advancing the value and impact of design- locally and globally- and also interested in working together to inspire, support, and learn from each other at every stage of their career.
