AAF Montgomery 2015-2016 Kick-off

I am excited to be starting a new year with AAF Montgomery. As the incoming president, I am looking forward to getting to know our membership better and to creating a greater value for our members. My main goal over the next 12 months is to build a stronger community of advertising professionals and students here in the River Region. To accomplish this goal, we have some great offerings this year for professional development and networking opportunities.

A few highlights:

• a great schedule of speakers for our monthly Lunch & Learns
• awesome new membership benefits
• more student engagement opportunities
• new after-hours social networking events with local speakers/professional development opportunities

One of the biggest changes that I want everyone to be aware of and to take note of is that our monthly Lunch & Learns are now going to be the third Thursday of the month at the Capitol City Club.

To get the year started off right, we are hosting a kick-off party. Mark your calendars for Thursday, August 27 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The event will take place at the Sanctuary and will be a great way to start networking with each other and to learn more about what AAF Montgomery can offer you. More details will be coming in a couple of days so stay tuned.

From now until the kick-off party, we are having a membership drive. If you become a member or renew your membership from last year, you will get a raffle ticket for some great prizes at the party. You can check out all of the new benefits here and download a membership application. We are still working on finishing up our website so the online registration is not yet complete, but in the meantime, you can use the PDF to sign up today. Amber Willingham, the Membership Chair, is available for any questions and any assistance you might need. Contact with questions.

Lots of things are happening for this upcoming year and the entire board is excited to get started. It is going to be a great year and I hope you all can join us!
