This month, our community meeting was all about how to get involved with our chapter–through our current programs and new ones suggested by YOU. If you aren’t sure how to get involved–or if you feel like AIGA Raleigh doesn’t have the right events for your needs–we wanted to answer those questions and bridge those gaps. Here is a list of ideas from the meeting we’re super excited about, along with programs you mentioned that we currently offer.

Republic Wireless hosted AIGA Raleigh's first InHouse Council on Thursday April 7. As a designer at Republic and an active member of AIGA, I was really looking forward to connecting with the in-house community. Panel members Ed Roberts, Creative Director at ElectriCities and in-house expert for HOW Design; Colleen Shelley, Senior Designer at RedHat; and Jeff Wright, VP of UX and Design at Sqord, Inc. discussed cross-functional collaboration, nourishing creativity, and raising design's profile within a company.
In preparation for next Monday's class, we asked Woody and Jeanne a few questions about the challenges and perks of owning their own creative biz.
