AIGA Asheville: We are a group of professional badasses drawn together by shared values and a passion for design. We educate, elevate, and serve the creative community in order to make more money, meaning, and memories.
We are seeking dedicated and passionate individuals to join our Board and help shape the Asheville creative community. AIGA Asheville is run by an all-volunteer Board, and each committee is co-chaired by up to 2 Board Members. We thoroughly enjoy getting to know each other and working together.

We are currently filling these rolls:

Board Members do not need to be designers, but should have an interest in supporting the creative community. You are welcome to apply if you are:
