Stepping into our new role amid our current circumstances under COVID-19 is challenging and a little scary. But we believe organizations and communities like AIGA are now more important than ever. We are feeling very excited and hopeful for the future of AIGA CT. Come join us as we do our part in shaping the future of the CT creative community.

AIGA CT Chair-level roles provide critical support to not only department directors, but also AIGA programs and initiatives. These roles work out the devil in the details and create content, plan and execute programs, work on education initiatives, ensure accessibility and inclusion, and represent critical creative communities (among other things). Directors can’t move high-level initiatives forward without dedicated and strong chairs.  

Freelance Chair

The primary responsibility of the Freelance Chair is to identify opportunities and help execute events that provide freelance designers new skills and social experiences.
