President’s Letter

Dear Creative Community,

This year, we are soliciting nominations for up to four new board members, who may be involved in event planning, membership, development/sponsorship, and other chapter programming. Board members do not necessarily need to be designers. They can be writers, development or fundraising specialists, or project managers, for example.

Until Friday, May 9, AIGA UPSTNY will be accepting nominations for new board members. By nominating yourself or someone else, you can help guide the activities of our chapter! Fill out the form NOW.

We were pleased to participate in “Facing Forward: AIGA 100” exhibition held in New York last month. All AIGA chapters were invited to design a Real Good chair representing the creative diversity of our community. Take a peak at the exhibition itself documenting AIGA’s history and vibrant chairs.

In case you have not noticed the social media flutter, our design week is full steam ahead with new events just added – Digital Publishing Workshop, Design Educator’s Brunch and Everson’s Beer Garden. For the full week’s activities visit

Sarah Burns

Our chapter is successful because of our members; please make sure to join if you are not already a member. People often as what they need to do to get involved, do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in making AIGA Upstate New York successful!
