Who is already leading the Austin design community in a positive direction? Could it be you? Now is the time to get those great leaders in an organization where they can have a greater impact.

NOMINATIONS

Do you know an individual that could help enhance the board’s leadership potential? Or do you yourself feel as if you could help improve AIGA Austin? Self or peer nominations are welcome for all living within Austin/Central Texas Region. Nominees need not be an AIGA member at time of nomination but would be required to hold the minimum membership status before becoming a board member.

THE PROCESS

Nominations will close 6:00 PM December 31st. At that time the board will review all submitted nominations for open positions. The sitting board will vote on submitted nominees to serve the next term at the next full board meeting.

OPEN POSITIONS

Priority is given to those candidates whose interests and skill sets match currently available positions. During your 2-year or 1-year term, you may have the option to change positions, according to your interests and the needs of the board. Here are the descriptions for the following positions open for nominations:

Membership Director

The Membership Director aims to maintain and grow the local membership. In essence, this is the indirect responsibility of every Board member, but the Membership Director leads any recruiting/membership drive initiatives. The Director does this primarily by maintaining tools and reports that assist with communicating to lapsing members and by creating and using tools that demonstrate the value of membership.

Development Director

The Development Director fosters a relationship of mutual benefit between between AIGA Austin and representatives from allied fields who service the design community. This usually occurs in the form of cash or in-kind sponsorship for Chapter events. He/she will work closely with the Programming Director in establishing a calendar and identifying potential sponsors for Chapter events and activities.

Volunteer Director

The purpose for the Volunteer Director is to organize efforts to recruit, coordinate and thank volunteers. Volunteers are recognized each spring for their services. Programming Directors and Chairs work with the Volunteer Director in a timely manner to ensure programming is properly supported for the chapter.
