A robust design community led by a volunteer group of directors, chairs, committees, advisors, & volunteers.
The Executive Board
Our Board of Directors is an all volunteer team voted in by the chapter membership. These hard-working leaders manage the chapter’s business affairs, set the goals and vision for the upcoming year, and lead an even larger team of Chairs and Committees who all work together to build a better design community.
