The RGD seeks Student Representatives for 2021/2022
We are looking for design students from across Canada to contribute to the RGD as Student Representatives. Student Reps work to help raise student awareness about all the great things the RGD offers and participate in a network of design students from across Canada.
The latest programs developed by the Student Committee include #HeyRGD and RGD Student Network on Discord.
The duties of Student Reps include:
- understand the RGD's mission and working to furthering that mission
- stay informed of RGD activities, particularly programs for Students
- educate fellow students on the RGD, its mission and programs
- keep the RGD informed of activities at your school (including grad shows)
- attend monthly virtual meetings to learn more about RGD programs and come up with ideas to raise awareness of the RGD 
- contribute to Emerging Designers Network on Discord and other communications
Monthly Meetings
At meetings taking place on the first Tuesday of every month at 8:00 p.m. ET, Reps have the opportunity to hear from senior industry professionals, learn about our programs, advise on new initiatives and ask questions about the Association and the industry generally.
Student RGD Members selected as Reps who effectively carry out their responsibilities from October 2021 to August 2022 will be considered for volunteering opportunities at future DesignThinkers Conferences and other events.


If you are interested in joining us for an exciting year on the Student Committee, please submit your application by October 1.
