AIGA Leadership Retreat

Kicking off the summer with top-notch leadership training.

One of the great benefits of serving on an AIGA chapter board is the opportunity to attend the annual Leadership Retreat, an early summer launchpad for incoming and returning board members to share their home victories, learn new design thinking and leadership skills, and bond over human pyramids and late-night karaoke.

This year, Amanda Hovest and I were invited by AIGA national to speaking on a membership marketing panel. Also, in response to the HB2 legislation in our host state of North Carolina, I collaborated with AIGA New Mexico president Darold Ross for this year's #GAYIGA after-party, celebrating the LGBTQ creative community and its allies.
