AIGA San Francisco is led by an inspiring group of individuals including an Executive Director, Executive Committee, Board of Directors and devoted Committee Members who direct their attention to one of our several design initiatives. Volunteers offer their time and energy to help run AIGA programs. Together they form a collaborative of interested community members responsible for fulfilling the goals of the chapter.
