Member Benefits

Member Benefits

We all have our own reasons for joining AIGA. Maybe it’s for networking opportunities, professional resources, or leadership skills. Or maybe it’s the sense of community and the opportunity to collaborate with other designers. Whatever the reason, you saw the value of getting involved in the professional organization for design, and membership has its benefits.

If you are involved in the AIGA Raleigh Design Community, then you already know the benefits of membership. You have access to the great events and program we produce every year, like the hugely successful Studio Tours and WEB101. You have invaluable opportunities to work with other designers on projects and event planning.  You have numerous opportunities to get involved and learn new skills. You have a place where you can make strong connections with like-minded individuals, and to get inspired by your peers. These are just some of the benefits you are able to take advantage of with your involvement in this chapter. But are you taking advantage of the national benefits of membership?
