This month, six designers join the national board of directors for AIGA, having been nominated following a national search and elected by a vote of AIGA's professional members. The newest directors represent a range of design disciplines and experiences and will serve one- to three-year terms.
Each of the new directors brings a specific perspective to the board as AIGA plans for the celebration of its centennial in 2014 and positions itself for success for the next 100 years.
