Now in its 35th year, ARCADE is building a community that cares deeply about design, art, and culture in our region, and is seeking qualified individuals with experience and passion for design to serve on our Board of Trustees.

Between our print publication, newsletter, website, social media network and growing calendar of events, ARCADE has established a strong and respected presence in the Northwest design and art communities. As the organization works to grow its diverse programs and content, it is vital to expand the diversity of the Board’s expertise and experience. ARCADE is interested in professionals in the fields of real estate, technology, law, education, fundraising, nonprofit management and journalism. We also welcome professionals from all design disciplines including architecture, engineering, urban planning, graphic design, interaction design, interior design, industrial design and landscape design.

With a working board, ARCADE’s future success depends on dedicated board members who can work collaboratively with staff and other volunteers. Interested candidates should share an excitement for ARCADE’s mission, be inspired to participate in creating its programming, and be willing to promote ARCADE’s importance within their circle of influence and beyond.

To share your interest, please contact the ARCADE board development co-chairs, Ron Rochon [email protected] and Ray Calabro [email protected]; you may also reach out to ARCADE's executive director, Kelly Rodriguez [email protected].


A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, ARCADE’s mission is to reinforce the principle that thoughtful design at every scale of human endeavor improves our quality of life.

ARCADE fulfills its mission through its award-winning magazine; events, educational lectures, panel discussions, salons; and web presence, which includes its website, e-newsletter, online calendar of Northwest design events and growing social media community.
