Welcome to the 2019-2020 AAF Buffalo chapter year! We couldn’t be more excited to hit the ground running after winning our second-ever Club of the Year award at ADMERICA 2019. Thanks to the efforts of immediate past president Tim Bouchard, the entire board, and all of our members, the chapter received seven 1st place and one 2nd place AAF Club Achievement Awards over a total of eight categories. We’ve now set our sights on repeating that same success this year.
Our programming continues to reach new heights as we head into the new chapter year. We’re again bringing in speakers from around the country as our four-part Spotlight Speaker Series kicks off in October. We look to add as much value as possible to our membership, so we’re hosting a wide range of events during our Ad Week in October, including a brand new Local Experts Panel. Additionally, we’re expanding our education efforts further in 2020, as we plan to disburse more than $5,000 in scholarship money this year.
Thanks to the efforts of an incredible committee and equally remarkable partnership with martin. in 2019, we’re coming off our most highly attended and second-most awarded ADDYs ever. We’re ready to live up to the hype though, as FARM is already concepting the 2020 show!
We believe strongly that growing our city and industry from the ground up is how to maintain greatness, and we look forward to playing a part in what Buffalo is becoming.
President – AAF Buffalo
