Volunteer Social

Free and open to anyone interested in volunteering with AIGA

We LOVE our volunteers, so every year we host a special Schmooze to celebrate those that make AIGA Seattle exist. After all, without our volunteers there would be no smiling faces checking you into the membership party, no photos from the studio tours on Facebook, no tweets letting you know what's going on in the design community, and no board members coordinating  events to feed your design soul!
