AIGA Seattle is 100% volunteer-powered and all are welcome!

Did you know that the AIGA Seattle chapter is run entirely by volunteers? From the board, to the organizers of events and initiatives, to the friendly folks who greet you at AIGA functions—we’re all volunteers. Volunteering for the chapter is a great way to meet other designers, hone your professional skills, and give back to your community. It's an opportunity to become a leader and share your unique voice. Plus, without our dedicated volunteers, we would not be able to carry out the incredible events and initiatives throughout the year. So we need you!

Ways to Volunteer

We have different types of volunteer opportunities:

  • Day-of Event Volunteer: Offer day-of event help on an as-needed basis. Examples of tasks include: helping with set-up, greeting guests registration, and helping with teardown. Sign up below!
  • Committee or Chair Volunteer: Chairs lead committees that take charge of a specific task or event. These roles are ongoing and require more of a time commitment. Duties vary by committee.
  • Director or Executive Volunteer: Take charge of a specific role or pillar, and collaborate with the rest of the board at regular board meetings and events. These roles require a two-year commitment and a completed application form. Duties vary by role.
