AIGA, the world’s oldest and largest professional design association, seeks an Executive Director (ED). As a vibrant, global community of design advocates and practitioners, AIGA comprises more than 26,000 members and 70 chapters around the US who seek to “bring design to the world, and the world to designers.”
The organization today is poised to enter a new era of advocacy on behalf of design as a respected professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force. The ED reports to a national Board of Directors and oversees a staff of 18 and an operating budget of $6 million.
In its next leader, AIGA seeks a champion, advocate, and ringmaster to steward and evolve the organization as it responds to a complex and fast-moving environment. AIGA intends to:
• Grow its sphere of influence among designers, educators, businesses, and cultural stakeholders;
• Enable its members to excel as instigators, designers, and change agents;
• Celebrate past and current success of the value of design; and
• Inspire new paths to engage with the future.
The ED must be a dynamic thought leader and spokesperson with a track record in organizational management and proven skills in effective staff leadership.
