I’m with the cool kids.

And not just that. I *am* the cool kid.

My local chapter makes me feel like a star when I show new design work. They say my name ‘Norm!’-style when I arrive to events. My ideas, no matter how nascent or far-reaching, are interesting to them. And when I hang with other AIGA members, I just overall feel like I’m a part of something bigger than day-to-day design. It’s, umm, cool.

Plus, I’ve met some of my very best friends through AIGA. I’ve gained incredible amounts of leadership experience by serving on the board. More design knowledge has come to me via AIGA than any other post-college resource. My membership means something to my employers (and future employers!). And I feel like my best interests are well-represented in government. Really! I (heart) AIGA.
