Get involved. Give back.
Did you know AIGA Detroit is 100% volunteer-powered? Our chapter’s success depends solely on the efforts of our many volunteers. It takes smart, dedicated, creative people like yourself to make everything we do possible. And while your volunteer efforts really do help the design community, they also help you build leadership skills, build your professional network, and, ok this is cheesy but bear with us, it feels good to give back and belong to a fun group!

The board meets monthly to report on and develop chapter activities. While this is a “working board,” we are fiducially and strategically responsible for this 501(c)3 organization. Taking on a board role is a serious endeavor with large responsibilities, however, it’s also an exciting task. Our board and committee members serve the Southeast Michigan design community, providing leadership and helping shape the understanding and value of our profession.
