Lessons in Leadership

Join us for a lesson.

Many of design’s most respected icons started as local AIGA chapter leaders.

If you're looking for ways to advance in your career or you just want to get more involved and contribute to your local community, come eavesdrop on Ann Willoughby, Rick Griffith, Debbie Millman and other chapter leaders as they talk about their career-long commitments to AIGA and how it helped them develop personally and professionally.

Before the panel, we’ll introduce you to some of the current chapter leaders and after the panel, you’ll have the chance to spend 45 minutes in breakout rooms with the ones currently responsible for recruiting new leaders in the local community closest to you.
