Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, is quoted as saying “change is the only constant in life.” Change can be scary, but it can also be exhilarating. I can only speak on my own behalf, and on behalf of AIGA Memphis’s current board: for us, change is about growth. We’re wildly optimistic about the growth we want to provide for our members in the coming years.
As a chapter of the largest professional association of designers in the world, AIGA Memphis is committed to working together to inspire, support and learn from each other, at every stage of our careers. In order to honor this commitment and new growth to our members we need to take a step back and re-structure our goals as a volunteer board. In short, we are announcing a six month hibernation.
During this time we will restructure the AIGA Memphis Board, redefine its role and shift the way in which we approach our members and non-members. Our goal is to hit the “reset” button on our chapter and how it supports Memphis and the surrounding areas.
In order to accomplish this we need your help. Our team needs a larger mix of creative talent, passion and experience to deliver on the ambitious objectives we’ve set forth for ourselves over the next 6 months. We need your design blood, sweat and tears to help revamp the next evolution of our chapter, and to ensure that it will grow and change to best support the creatives in our city.

In closing, we want to help you grow in your creative career. Only together can we advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force in Memphis and beyond.
Thanks for your understanding and support during this time of transition.
President, AIGA Memphis
