Welcome to the 2017-2018 AAF Buffalo club year! We’re coming straight off the heels of a year that brought the Spotlight Speaker Series, a new scholarship program with Buffalo Prep, and introduced the local creative community to the wide world of wrestling. These successes are of no surprise given my predecessor Scott’s leadership of the club over the last three years culminating with the recognition of AAF Buffalo as Club of the Year this past year by AAF National. While this may seem like mission accomplished, it is merely mission launched for us.
This year we look to keep that momentum going and build off of it. The Spotlight Speaker Series is bigger and better than ever as we look to continue selling out these high profile events. Our “Disruptors” themed Ad Week will aim to inspire and challenge the status quo in our collective industry. Student outreach is taking a massive step and offering free event registration to all student events for our student members and introducing new events.
Our goal as a board this year is to provide the most valuable resource for education, professional development, and networking for our membership. As our community thrives here in Buffalo, our industry grows with it. We aim to play a big part in supporting and aiding all of the professionals and students in our area as they grow their companies and careers to reach their full potential.
