2017 Spring Membership Drive

Celebrating the benefits of AIGA Membership in Orange County.
Monday April 17 — Saturday April 22.

As the largest professional association of designers in the world, AIGA is committed to advancing the value and impact of design, both locally and globally, and working together to inspire, support, and learn from each other at every stage of our careers. http://www.aiga.org/join/

This week is our Spring Membership Drive — a week-long focus on the benefits of AIGA membership, with some extra perks for individuals who choose to join or renew as members in this time period.

AIGA’s paid memberships help to bring resources to Orange County that we‘re working to share with everyone, AIGA member or not. Membership isn’t designed to be a paywall to our content or community. Instead, it’s an invaluable way to support our mission of serving the creative community.

Each day of the membership drive we’ll be highlighting three things:

  • Something Free — for all members.*
  • Something Discounted — for all members.
  • Something to Giveaway — a lottery for one lucky winner who joins or renews** their membership that particular day.

*Unless otherwise specified.
**Current members can renew their membership early in order to be eligible for this week’s special benefits.

As we share these benefits across our communications channels this week, we would love for you to consider supporting AIGA OC with membership.

Thank you!
Team AIGA Orange County

A Note on Our Email Campaign

We’re excited to advertise so many member benefits and giveaways this week. That being said, we also want to acknowledge that for one week only we’re going to be sending our whole subscriber list a daily email. This decision was driven by the fact email content contains benefits for all of our members, not just those who sign-up or renew this week. If you’re the sort of person that hates daily emails, we appreciate your patience. Our regular (and less-frequent) email programming will resume next week.
