Foreword / Forward: An AIGA Chicago Public Board Meeting

A precursor to the path ahead of us. How we plan to move forward. Join us at our virtual Public Board Meeting Foreword / Forward—to take inventory of where we've been and to embrace exciting changes in our future.

In the spirit of community building and transparency, we are making our zoom windows available and turning on our cameras. This moment is an opportunity to put some names and faces to a board that no one has seen much of in 2020. We’d also like to share how we have been listening to you and how we have been shaping new paths forward—for our Chicago chapter and the greater Chicago community.

During the meeting, we’re going to directly address and acknowledge you, the Chicago Design community, by sharing responses submitted to us via the 2021 Community Survey and answering some pre-submitted questions live.

Other agenda items include:

  • Share and answer questions collected from this event’s registration form
  • Share open board positions
  • Detail upcoming events

Let's create a more equitable design community together. We can't wait to see you there.

The link to the Zoom event will be sent out to you via email a day before the event and again the afternoon of the event.
