The AOB Board is a Great Experience!
AOB board members are passionate about developing pathways to career success for young creatives. They tap into regional networks, share industry expertise, and are motivated to listen to, coach, and advocate for young people. AOB board members leverage their personal and organizational resources to help AOB grow. For example, board member Lucia Tang, led the architectural design of our studio expansion, engaging her work colleagues through multiple design projects and fundraising events.
Why You Should Consider Joining this Board
The AOB board culture is casual and can-do, with a well-balanced mix of professional, social, and personal opportunities to be a part of the life of a highly creative organization at a time of positive growth and change. Right now, the board is leading AOB 2.0, an organizational design process to examine everything we do through the lens of racial equity and social inclusion, formally integrate human-centered design practice into our operations, and significantly level-up around information management and design technologies as we anticipate our new home and rise to regional leadership and service.
