The American Advertising Federation of Montgomery

Committees

It has been said of volunteer organizations, as well as life, that you only get back what you put into it. AAF Montgomery has been fortunate that so many of our members have taken this sentiment to heart.

Being a member is what you make of it. The more you want to be involved and take advantage of opportunities provided, the more payoff you’ll see–feeling connected, valued, and fulfilled. Our local club has many nationally recognized and award-winning initiatives. Make the most of it by digging a little deeper.
