I live and work in paradise!

AIGA has given me the power to move from state to state and find friends and jobs. I would have never been able to quit my job and leave everything to move 3,000 miles to the west coast if there was no AIGA. You always hear the board members say, “AIGA is what you make of it” and “You get out of it, what you put into it”… I speak from experience when I say, “They were spot on!” I think AIGA is a many times over looked, yet very powerful, organization that has the ability to make you a better person and a better friend to the community. AIGA can help you be as successful as you want to be… AIGA showed me that I too can be a leader… AIGA… you complete me!

AIGA helped me get a $10K pay raise and a more creative design job. How did AIGA help me do this?  Three words… I got involved. Then a few years later I got restless and wanted a new job and again, AIGA helped me find one. That’s two jobs in three years… not too shabby. Once you get involved and participate at the board level you will be amazed at how many people you will meet. And not just people, but the right people. By putting myself out there and getting involved, I got a seat at the table so to speak. My volunteer efforts with this organization have never gone unnoticed and have really taken me places… I wouldn’t trade my almost seven years of volunteer service with AIGA for anything. I defiantly got out of AIGA what I put into it… times three!
