Believe it or not, another year has gone by and once again we’re asking for your nominations. That’s right: the time has come to begin the election process for the next AIGA Charlotte Board of Directors. As always, we are seeking dedicated design professionals who have a passion for advancing our craft and strengthening our creative community. Being a board member not only allows you to be more involved; you can help mold and shape the future of our chapter, too.
Keep in mind that our “creative community” features more than just designers. Having copywriters, developers, photographers, videographers, and more on the board only creates a much stronger whole. We’re always hoping for nominations that offer a breadth of talent and experience for the upcoming term.
To nominate yourself, or someone else, please send an email to AIGA Charlotte’s President, Adam Iscrupe. Include the name of the individual, their email address and phone number, and either a brief statement sharing why you’d like to join AIGA Charlotte’s Board of Directors, or a short recommendation of why the person you are nominating is a good candidate. You do not need to nominate an individual for a specific position. AIGA Charlotte’s Nominating Committee will be tasked with matching nominees to appropriate positions.
Nominees will then be contacted by a Board representative and asked to participate in an informational interview session around the second week of June. At this session, current board members will discuss our positions and the responsibilities attached to those roles. Nominees will participate in informal discussions with current board members to help determine the best fit for each nominee.
To be eligible, individuals must be an active member of the Charlotte Chapter of AIGA and must be good stewards of AIGA’s Standards of Professional Practice. If you have any questions about the responsibilities of being a board member, please contact AIGA Charlotte’s President, Adam Iscrupe. The nominations period starts today, and will close June 8th. We look forward to hearing from you.
