Director of Programming
The Director of Programming is responsible for overseeing the full calendar of AIGA CT’s events and our yearly programming strategy. Working with the Event Chair, Project Chair (when necessary), and the event lead they will ensure each event is successful from the planning stages to execution. This includes overseeing scheduling, approving budgets, ensuring appropriate contracts are completed, and that staffing is being managed for onsite executions. Another primary role for the Director of Programming is ensuring events are being loaded onto Fonteva and our website. The Director of Programming is ultimately responsible for the duties of individual chairs and/or committee members in their absence or if they are unable to carry out their responsibilities.
The Event Chair is responsible for assisting the Director of Programming. They will help with the planning, execution, and recap of events. They will also assist in outreach by creating and maintaining event resources. In order to ensure department efforts are being effectively managed, Chairs are encouraged to recruit committee members to assist with various duties as needed.
Committee members support their director and the committee’s purpose. This can include event planning, outreach, research, content, and project management!
You are encouraged to lead within the committee and take responsibility for tasks assigned to you. Committee members encourage one another to stay active and creative and are encouraged to network and establish relationships with event attendees and community partners.
Each committee requires a different amount of commitment, on average we estimate roughly 5-10 hours a month. Committee members term is dependent on the project that you choose to help with!
