Volunteer with AIGA Minnesota in 2018. We are strong because of our volunteers. AIGA Minnesota is a 100% volunteer-run organization and in the past 12 months more than 100 AIGA members have volunteered for the chapter in some capacity giving freely of their time, expertise and resources. Their passion is the lifeblood of the organization.

We’re looking for local design leaders and enthusiasts to step up and commit to a term of service to help shape the future of the Minnesota chapter.
