About Volunteering

AIGA LA is a volunteer-run organization, and our success is directly related to the involvement of people just like you. Volunteering is the best way to build your professional network, grow your leadership skills, and make an impact on your community.

Volunteers are needed to craft our communication materials and to maintain our social media presence. Membership volunteers help us reach out to our current and future members and better support their needs and interests. Event volunteers are needed on a frequent basis at events in the areas of registration, preparation of give-away materials, ushering, and light food service. Generally, you are asked to arrive an hour before the presentation begins, you’re introduced to your fellow volunteers, and you get to work on setting up the event. At show time, you’re on your own to enjoy the presentation.

Looking to sign up for specific events? Please sign up here. This form is updated on a regular basis.

If you’d like to volunteer in a specific committee, please complete the contact form at the bottom of this page and let us know which one of our committees is of most interest to you. We look forward to meeting you!
