AIGA San Francisco is led by an inspiring group of individuals including an Executive Director, Executive Committee, Board of Directors and devoted committee members. Volunteers and staff offer their time and energy to help run AIGA events and programs. Each board member directs their attention to one of AIGA’s several initiatives on design and serves a staggered 2 year term. They form a collaborative of interested individuals responsible for fulfilling the goals of the chapter.
