Members work in thousands of organizations of all sizes, in government, as independent consultants, and suppliers. 

We currently are searching for a Graphic Designer who is a self-starting team player to join the Creative Services division of our fast-paced in-house Marketing department. The work is never boring and the co-workers are fun, dedicated people who take pride in their work.

The successful candidate will possess strong graphic design and typography skills, as well as technically skilled in Adobe CC (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator), and MS Office in a Mac environment.

The person must have experience with pre-press and offset printing; knowledge of print production process and how it affects design. We create a wide variety of projects in a fast-paced environment, including annual reports, page composition and book layout, brochures, catalogs, publications, Web interface and digital design, conference design, advertising, and corporate identity.
