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.

This month’s community meeting came at the perfect time. Right when I was feeling down from news overload, inspirational quotes of wisdom and mentorship cleared the dark cloud over my head.
