Committees

Membership Committee

This committee does exactly what you would think — grow membership and help communicate all the great benefits of joining AAF. This committee also works with the community to develop partnerships that promote AAF - Fort Worth and increase the number of memberships.

Programs Committee

Interesting, entertaining, informative, and exciting programs are essential to all successful clubs. Time and again, club membership surveys indicate that programs are among the chief reasons members belong to an organization. Good programming fosters an actively interested membership, well-attended meetings, membership growth, and many opportunities for expanded activities. Contact Programs Chair, Kylie Mills, at mills@gcgmarketing.com.

Education Committee

No matter where we are in our careers — students to seasoned professionals — we can always learn something new. We hope to help our members grow and inspire each other to achieve our loftiest goals and dreams within the industry. This committee also helps to develop and maintain ideas that continue the education of advertising and business professionals within the local community. 

Communications Committee

We are expert communicators. Easy? Sure. But we all know it takes an effort to communicate your group’s activities to its membership and to the local advertising and marketing community. Contact Communications Chair, Laurel McEuen, at lmceuen@kisabethfurniture.com.

Sponsorships and Fundraising Committee

Many of our efforts are geared toward raising money — whether it’s for our public service causes, funds dedicated to education efforts, or money to bring in top-notch speakers at our monthly luncheons. This committee works to increase our fundraising efforts through existing event sponsorships or even create a new fundraiser that can serve AAF - Fort Worth and its membership. 

Club Management Committee

Our board members and volunteers spend hundreds of hours planning programs, producing events, performing public service work, and communicating with members and media. The club management committee is in the middle of everything, keeping it all on track. And we document these efforts in annual club achievement reports and submit them to district- and national-level competitions to see how we stack up against other AAF chapters. 

Government Relations Committee

AAF’s tiered structure facilitates the rapid deployment of legislative information both from a national level to the masses, as well as from a local level to Washington. AAF aims to protect the integrity and interests of the advertising industry at all levels by serving as the unified voice of advertising constituents nationwide.
