Join the AIGA GNV Board!
Are you interested in playing an active role in the design community? Do you enjoy being a part of AIGA, and want to play a bigger role in Gainesville’s chapter? Join the AIGA Gainesville board! We’re always on the look out for motivated, dedicated community members to step up and nominate themselves or colleagues, friends, mentors and coworkers to join us in making a difference.
A few words about Board Service:
AIGA Gainesville is a 100% volunteer driven organization. We’re looking for local design leaders and enthusiasts to step up and commit to a term of service to help continue to benefit and grow design in Gainesville. Our membership allows us to create and execute incredible programming, orchestrate workshops and push the boundaries of what we think we’re able to do, with what we are able to do.
What is involved in board service?
Commitment: We’re looking for community members who can commit to a two year service agreement to serve the board, as well as the time, self-motivation and dedication to create programming, community & change. This is hard work, but it’s oh-so rewarding.
Responsibility: With great power… We’re trusting you to be a face of the design community in Gainesville. We hold panels, bring big name speakers to the area, and constantly network. With that level of sociability, you better bet there’s a level of responsibility that comes with it. If you can agree to disagree, respect your fellow designers (and non!), and know when to play and when to work, we think you’ll fit right in.
AIGA Membership: Currently, national HQ requires all active board members to be of the supporting level or higher.
Show Up: Support your fellow board member’s passions, projects & programming. We require all board members to attend at least 70% of each year’s events.
Being involved with the chapter is more than just showing up to events, and having a bit more responsibility on your plate, it’s making a difference in the community you live and work in, and seeing the results of that every day. Serving helps us grow as leaders, as designers, and as collaborators. We work together, as a team, to see Gainesville become a hub for design and creativity.
Do you have a dream for the area? Do you want a speaker to come out? Do you want to see more inclusion within design here? Then board service is for you. The benefits of board service is the feeling you get after a successful event, an amazing interaction or spending the morning talking design at the Coffee with Creatives you helped organize.
In addition to that warm, fuzzy feeling. Board members begin to cultivate a huge network in the area and beyond. How cool is it to know that you have friends in all fifty states thanks to the nation-wide network of AIGA Chapters?
We’re here to create community for designers, developers, photographers, project managers and the like. And we’re looking for others with the same mission in mind.
