I am thrilled and grateful to become the next President of AIGA Los Angeles.
Thank you for the trust you have bestowed me to lead our chapter for the next two years. The board is filled with enthusiastic and passionate people, and they have been working incredibly hard to make the upcoming Fellows Awards Night the start of a new chapter in AIGA Los Angeles.
Change doesn’t miraculously happen, but it’s through blood, sweat and tears of individuals that move the bar forward. David Mayes and Agustín Garza are two of those people who are so well deserving of this award, and Lynda Weinman and Bruce Heavin will be receiving our first AIGA Los Angeles Visionary Award. On June 21st, we will honor and thank these four individuals for making our chapter and our profession more valued and understood.
I invite you to be an active part of AIGA Los Angeles history by attending this wonderful occasion, and raising a glass to our honorees. I invite you to take part in meeting generations of creatives and being part of our community. I invite you to stop waiting for things to change, but move the bar forward. I invite you to represent.
I want a Los Angeles Chapter that has the power to fill 500 seats, and I know we can do this for this 2012 Fellows Award Night. We’re close, but it’s not going to happen if I merely “hope” you’ll be there. Instead I’m inviting you directly.
Please join me!
I look forward to personally welcoming you to this wonderful event. See you there.
