  5. Term start: Elected candidates will be onboarded, and new board/committee members will begin their term on July 1, 2024.

The board is looking to fill eight (8) two-year seats, with a term through 2026.

The board is looking to fill five (5) one-year seats with terms through 2025.

A Nominating Committee ensures that member interests are represented and that the AIGA Jacksonville board retains a fresh and diverse perspective. This process is open and inclusive, and anyone who completes the nomination form is considered.

The criteria for identifying the Nominating Committee of 3-5 individuals outside the current board are as follows:

  • 1 member of the prior year’s nominating committee
  • 1 member of the current board who is stepping down
  • 1-2 former members of the board (past presidents are good choices)
  • 1 non-board member who is active in AIGA and understands boards
  • The current president of the board (or president-elect) is not allowed to serve on the nominating committee to avoid the opportunity to anoint a successor

Each nominee is expected to complete the online form so that the nominating committee may consider the credentials of all candidates individually and comparatively. If you have questions about the form or the nomination process, please contact nominations [at] jacksonville.aiga.org.

The nomination form is designed to help the nominee prepare and present their qualifications consistently and assures that the committee has the same information on all candidates.

The Nominations Committee will review applications through May 31, 2024, to fill the open seats on the board of directors for a two-year term beginning July 2024. The Committee will then recommend a single candidate for each open position to the board. AIGA Jacksonville members will then vote on the board slate to ratify the board.

We thank you in advance for your interest in joining the AIGA Jacksonville board.
