We are excited to announce that AIGA Toledo is looking for new Board Members! We have 3 open positions to join the Board of Directors. Our board is adopting a structure of co-roles—this allows executive positions to collaborate and share responsibilities. This new board structure aims to help incoming board members learn the ins and outs of their role by collaborating with an experienced board member. We are seeking a range of professional practitioners, being a Graphic Designer is not a requirement. We are excited to expand our board in order to better serve Toledo’s creative community!
What will you gain from joining the AIGA Toledo Board of Directors? Being a volunteer on the AIGA Toledo Board provides experience in leadership, collaborative problem solving, event planning, and community building. You will have the opportunity to network with creative professionals regionally and nationally, and supporting local creatives through original programming.
AIGA Toledo’s mission is to bring together an inclusive community, create change, empower one another and elevate design within the city of Toledo. We believe that with your help we can accomplish this mission in 2020 and for years to come!
