Involvement Committees

    AAAwards Gala Committee

    Director — Sophie Hedge

    The AAAwards Gala is our cornerstone event that celebrates the wide variety of talent present all across District 10. This committee is responsible for the organization, promotion, and execution of the event. This also includes the collection of entries and preparing the entries for judging. It's a lot of work, but the payoff is epic.

    Programs Committee

    Director — Jennifer Maxwell

    The success of any local AdFed meeting relies upon the quality of speakers that we provide; it has a direct relationship to meeting attendance. It is the job of this committee to get the best speakers that can share information that is pertinent to our varied membership. This committee also plans for and facilitates all of our other events, such as our Summer Social.

    Membership Committee

    Director — Kaitlyn McLendon

    This committee is on the front lines of our recruitment efforts. Successful membership committee members are very familiar with that AdFed does with and for our community, and are socially-minded — those that actively seek opportunities to connect with those who would be good candidates for AdFed membership.

    Education Committee

    The goal of this committee is to sustain and improve the future of advertising and marketing in our community and to develop activities that expand students' knowledge and confidence about a career in advertising. We work with educators to maintain a pipeline of assistance and information between schools and our club.
    Our further goal is to develop and maintain ideas that continue the education of the advertising and business professionals within the community.

    Communications Committee

    Director — Paige Carswell

    This committee is in charge of all communication portals for our chapter. We help all other committees by getting the word out about our events, sharing chapter news and updates, as well as keeping track of the flow of information between members.

    Public and Gov't Relations Committee

    This committee facilitates communication with outside parties and handles our public service projects. It also closely follows legislation that may affect the advertising industry, locally or nationally.
