ADMERICA 2017 Conference

On June 7-10 three of the AAF Sacramento Board Members attended the national ADMERICA 2017 Conference held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New Orleans.  President Chris Terrazas (Diego), VP Heather Smith and Treasurer Cole Alexander enjoyed 4 days of AAF (American Advertising Federation) introductions and awards including a District 14 meeting, Western Region Meeting and National Meeting. They also attended the National MOSAIC AWARDS honoring diversity and inclusion in the advertising industry, The Chairman's Reception at Mardi Gras World, the National Student Advertising Competition Luncheon, The Salute to AAF Achievers Luncheon and the coveted American Advertising  Reception and Awards Show. You can see the National Gold & Silver recipients and creative here.

The #ADMERICA2017 attendees will be reporting key learnings at the next AAF Sacramento board meeting for the 2016-2017 fiscal year.  Primary themes that Chris, Heather and Cole will be bringing to the board and the members for the next year are to better garner the prestige and support from the AAF, submit at least three Club Achievements and exude the key benefits of being part of the National AAF including leadership and professional development, relationships, public service, community, lobbying, recognition and more.
