Meet the New and Returning AIGA Charlotte Board Members

Every summer the AIGA Charlotte Board of Directors sees change. While we’re sad to see the dedicated volunteers from the prior year go, that sadness is always tempered by the fresh new faces that step in to take charge. This year we have a ton of new faces and a few that you’re already familiar with. Learn a little about them here, but be sure to say hello in person next time you see them at one of our events.
