COVID-19 Update

Due to the worldwide implications of this disease, AIGA has decided to postpone the Leadership Retreat and Conference until November 11–14, 2020. This has been an extremely difficult decision, and we hope you understand our concerns and actions.

Over the course of the past few weeks, it became clear that COVID-19 was spreading quickly within communities. We took this precaution to protect not only our attendees, but the individual communities of which you belong.

If you are registered for the Conference, you will have an email alerting you of the date change. 

Register by November 7, 2020
