Who and What

This will be the fourth American Advertising Federation Central Region Conference. It brings together AAF club leaders from 18 states and 5 districts. The conference is being promoted to all 84 AAF clubs consisting of 12,000 members of Central Region. Attendees are engaged in the advertising/communications industry and are leaders in their local and district AAF organizations. Central Region attendees will be drawn from Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Northwest Louisiana. We’re expecting somewhere between 170 and 225 participants - some of the best and brightest advertising leaders.

When and Where

Registration opens Thursday, September 28th, with an Opening Reception that evening.

Sessions and Keynotes will begin Friday, September 29, 2017 and continuing through Saturday, September 30, 2017 at the new Embassy Suites Hotel in Amarillo, Texas.

Thursday afternoon, registration begins - and then we load up our guest to take everyone to the Welcome Reception to get the networking started.

 

Continued registration starts early on Friday. The Embassy Suites Hotel offers free breakfast, and 15% off for those attending the Conference. We start at 9:00am with our first keynote speaker, followed by concurrent breakout sessions, morning and afternoon.

Lunch will be provided in the General Sessions room, followed by our Keynote Speakers’ presentation. Friday evening, Amarillo will host special “outing” options providing transportation to a Pub Crawl in Downtown Amarillo and the Big Texan!

 

Saturday will feature two more high-profile keynotes (morning and lunch), including a Special Celebrity Guest! Look for an announcement Summer 2017.  Breakout sessions to inspire will continue concurrently all day, followed by a club roundtable where participants can share best practices. Time is allotted in late afternoon  for our 5 Districts to have their meetings. Saturday evening celebrates the conference with a Special Event to end it with lasting fun and new friendships! We’ll be sending you more information on that soon.  


We have an excellent group of professionals at AAF Amarillo, I know you will have a good time on your visit.

Why

This conference was created to fill the gap between a district conference and the national conference. While the 10th District (Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and western Louisiana) holds three large, well attended conferences each year (usually 100-150 attendees), the other four districts that – together with the 10th – comprise the Central Region, do not. Most districts hold just one or two small conferences each year, attended by 50 or fewer people in club leadership within their district. Because of the small attendance, these districts often cannot afford to bring in national-quality speakers and trainers. While these speakers and trainers ARE available at the national conference, the cost to attend the national conference is often prohibitive for small clubs to send their leaders. The goal for this conference is to provide high caliber training, networking and speakers at a level close to that of the national conference for a price that is affordable for even small clubs.

BONUS!!! The AAF Tenth District leaders have offered a BOGO! Pay for a full registration and get another paid by the Tenth District - one per club.  Now that is reason to come to this great conference! Contact Kevin Dobbs for more information.
