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. AAF Omaha enters in all eight categories of the competition. The Membership Club Achievement Binder was completed and is a great recap of our year in membership! Let’s keep the momentum going!

Meet The Pros was very successful and brought in over a hundred students. The luncheons brought together industry professionals and the students for very interesting conversations. Read the Meet the Pros recap.
