Why Become A Member ?

Membership Has Its Benefits

AIGA, the professional association for design, represents more than 25,000 designers through national activities and local programs developed by 70 chapters and 240 student groups. AIGA has been advancing the value of design since 1914, acting as the collective voice of the profession and providing numerous resources to members.

As an AIGA member, your dues support the national organization in New York, while also providing resources for the local San Francisco chapter. Those resources are used to leverage private and corporate sponsorships for events, programs and scholarships.

The San Francisco chapter of AIGA is one of the largest, most active and exciting chapters in the country. With many events and programs on diverse topics there is no reason not to join.
