By attending an AIGA event, you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct.

We raise a glass to you, the dedicated volunteer. You make AIGA Minnesota possible.

We are strong because of our volunteers. AIGA Minnesota is entirely volunteer run and in the past 12 months more than 100 AIGA members have volunteered for the chapter-giving freely of their time, expertise, and resources. You are the reason AIGA Minnesota continues to advance design as a professional craft, strategic tool, and vital culture force.

Here’s to you! Join us as we celebrate YOU the evening of Wednesday, March 20th.

Light appetizers and beverages will be served.

This event is by invite only, to members who volunteer with AIGA Minnesota.
Watch for an email invitation hitting your inbox soon. RSVP requested.


A special thank you to Werner Design Werks (design) and Studio On Fire (printing services) for their generous support.
