    I joined the Reno-Tahoe AIGA chapter when it was just launching. We are still the newest AIGA chapter in the nation and I did it because I am not content to sit on sidelines while they try to figure out how or when to adopt web design and digital designers. Instead I would rather be active in the chapter by going to every event possible and voicing my opinion.

    Of course it also helps that one of our board is from a web agency and she has been instrumental in getting multidisciplinary designers to come and speak. Recently we had an excellent panel on online branding with Rob Bynder, Stanley Hainsworth and Gene Keenan.

    So, even though the national organization is lagging we are doing everything we can to incorporate all disciplines here locally. So forgive me, but I do not agree with your opinion that change has to come from the top down. If your passionate about web and digital mediums start locally and push the topic up. Sooner or later the national organization can not ignore what is happening at the chapter level across the country.

    Chris,

    I value your opinion, but I find it hard to agree when the AIGA lists the expansion into other design mediums as “in progress” on their mission sheet. I have yet to see these changes, I just hope it is something we will see soon.

    completely unrelated to your post, but

    hello, i did a google search on design internships, and found your creative internships website (which led me to your blog). just wanted to express my gratitude over your initiative in providing a web resource for student designers and developers. i look forward to its growth. :)

    This article was sent to me from a valued friend- luckily, our local AIGA chapter here in San Diego is addressing this quite actively. From “xd3” events that feature speakers who do interactive and web development, to workshops on web design and programming, they are adding the cross-disciplines of all that is now required of graphic designers to their offerings.

    Hopefully it will spur on more local AIGA chapters to step up and encourage a grass-roots movement. With enough people, we can instigate integrating this cross-discipline development together.
