Community, Networking, Internship, Awareness

I joined the AIGA so that my school’s chapter could become a recognized AIGA student group. I wanted to become involved and this was my way to do that. I have volunteered for various AIGA events. I participated in the local AIGA Portfolio Review. This lead to me getting an internship. When I later transferred to art school. The contacts I had made through the AIGA helped me in my transition.

I have been an AIGA member for 2 years. My membership has been very valuable to me. I am always trying to get my classmates to join the group and to get involved. Most of them can’t understand how this organization can beneficial to them. Fortunately for me this gives me a leg up on my competition.
