2023 President-Elect Nominations are Open

ABOUT AIGA LA

On Monday June 6, 2022, the AIGA Los Angeles membership approved a restatement of our chapter bylaws, the legal document that dictates how our association is governed. This restatement included the addition of a new role on the AIGA Los Angeles board: President-Elect.

The President-Elect’s service overlaps with the incumbent President’s term to help with the transition of leadership before the President-Elect takes their seat as chapter President at the start of the following term date.

To be in alignment with the governing document of our non-profit, the role of President-Elect is now open for nominations! The person nominated to this role will become chapter president for one term beginning June 1, 2023 and ending May 31, 2025.

We believe that as an organization we should reflect the community we serve with diversity of professional backgrounds, experience levels, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability statuses, and nationality.
