It has been said of volunteer organizations, as well as life, that you only get back what you put into it. AAF of the Midlands is completely supported by volunteers. We rely on the many talents and resources of our membership. It’s a win-win. Our committees provide leadership opportunities and a chance to learn new skills, while meeting and sharing ideas with other professionals in related fields.

We’re not asking for a lot of time, just a commitment to the overall mission of AAF whether it be through planning events or lending a helping hand with the American Advertising Awards, driving membership or communicating our message.
