Call for Volunteers

AIGA Charlotte is looking for volunteers to join our Board of Directors!

You may attend AIGA Charlotte events regularly. You may have volunteered a couple of times in the past. You may have even been involved as a mentor in our Mentorship program. You’ve been drawn to Charlotte’s design community over time, and find yourself with a continued drive to do more, become more involved, and make more of a difference. If this sounds like the energy and passion you’re looking to provide, and if you are wanting to become more involved with our chapter, AIGA Charlotte wants you!

We have multiple positions available on the Board—Programming Manager, Social Media Manager, Diversity & Inclusion Managers, Education Managers, and more! Apply now!
