Each year AAF Omaha participates in AAF’s National Club Achievement Competition. The Club Achievement Competition is designed to recognize outstanding accomplishments of AAF affiliated advertising clubs across the country and to showcase the programs and projects clubs undertake each year. We are excited to announce that the membership club achievement binder won 1st Place! Tremendous job to all of the membership team and all of our members. Let’s keep the momentum going!
The AdBites Luncheon on May 21 at Beacon Hills in Aksarben Village was packed! We heard from Marianne Gjerstad who is the Group Engagement Director at Barkley in Kansas City. She enlightened us on how to create social content that people care about. We also presented awards to our scholarship winners.
We held the AAF Bingo Tournament on June 13. Over 35 people attended and there was many prizes and fun for everyone!
