A New mission: SEPTEMBER 18, 2022

AIGA Vermont empowers and supports1 all professional creatives2 by fostering connections3 and demonstrating the impact4 of art and design.

We’re learning alongside you—the chapter members—and consider our mission to be living with this learning. The mission of AIGA VT belongs to all of us and we invite the whole of our creative community to nurture its growth. We don’t have all the answers, and we promise to stay curious, engage, and question what we think we know.

The current mission, written in February 2022, was constructed using information from surveyed members and non-members to learn how our chapter can better realize our collective purpose.

Here is what we heard:

(1) Facilitate growth through skill-building, professional development, resources, and networking that supports professional creatives in all stages of their career.

(2) Extend AIGA VT’s efforts and outreach to the greater professional creative community. Any creative professional who wants to learn and grow with us can find benefit in becoming a member.

(3) Establishing space for professional creatives to discover, acknowledge, and engage in patterns of need for their culture and craft.

(4) Advocate for the role of creative professionals in business within the greater professional community.

AIGA advances design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, we bring together practitioners, enthusiasts, and patrons to amplify the voice of design and create the vision for a collective future. We define global standards and ethical practices, guide design education, enhance professional development, and make powerful tools and resources accessible to all.
