"The collegiality of RGD is what I’d stress to anyone considering getting their designation or volunteering. As an RGD, you are part of a community that is there for you if you need help – I’m proud to have helped out in the early years and now that I am a ‘veteran’, passing along my experience and knowledge to younger designers is my way of paying it forward." Robin Honey RGD 


"Working as an in-house designer, I appreciate how much RGD conferences and events keep me connected to a larger community of designers. Being involved in planning and supporting these events help me stay even more connected." Michael J. Young RGD


"The most satisfying experience I continue to have as an RGD is as a member of their Accessibility Advisory Committee, which enables me to combine my two passions of disability advocacy and design...I was able to contribute and participate in the development of RGD's AccessAbility: A Practical Handbook on Accessible Web Design... While awareness is improving throughout the design community, addressing disability-related issues and advocacy is an area that continues to require a great deal of work and education. RGD continues to grow and support this effort through guidelines and information sharing, in addition to hosting speakers with knowledge tailored specifically to disability and design." Michelle Hopgood RGD 


"RGD has specific committees of students and newly professional designers. It has student representatives and young professionals just starting out on its Board of Directors, and they have a vote. The other directors really listen to what these young designers have to say. This willingness to listen and be open to new ideas is just one of the reasons RGD has been so successful. I value an organization that continually evolves to help our profession so profoundly. It’s why I remain excited to work with such a wonderfully dedicated group of people. It’s why I am an RGD." Rod Nash RGD
