AIGA/NY shares office space with AIGA, the national organization, at the headquarters in The Woolworth Building and has a very small staff. AIGA/NY depends on the help and goodwill of volunteers to carry out a calendar of about 70 events per year, in addition to the Mentoring Program and other NY chapter initiatives.
Volunteering with AIGA/NY can be a great way to network, to attend NY chapter events at no charge, and to give back to your community.
Volunteers are most often needed at events in the areas of registration, preparation of give-away materials, ushering, and light food service. Generally, you are asked to arrive an hour before the presentation begins, you’re introduced to your fellow volunteers, and you get to work on setting up the event. At show time, you’re on your own to enjoy the presentation.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please sign up for our volunteering email list. By signing up, you are agreeing to receive volunteer email requests 1 to 2 times a month.
If you are not currently an AIGA member, we strongly recommend you become one.
