I Heard You Missed Us! We’re Back!

I am thrilled to be the new President of the American Advertising Federation Silicon Valley Club. It is with great enthusiasm and dedication that I embark on this journey to revitalize our club and usher in a new and exciting chapter and officially reclaim our identity as the AAF Silicon Valley. This rebirth symbolizes not just a return, but a rejuvenation, and we are determined to become a thriving force within the advertising community once again.

The American Advertising Federation is known for its unwavering commitment to protecting and promoting the well-being of advertising. We recognize the power of this unique, nationally coordinated grassroots network, which unites brands, agencies, media companies, local advertising clubs, and college chapters. Now, it is our turn to amplify that voice, to represent Silicon Valley, and to ensure our vibrant community contributes to the ever-evolving advertising landscape.

I would also like to introduce you to Jeff Heid, our Awards Chair. I invite you to join us as we breathe new life into the AFF Silicon Valley Club and our Annual Awards. Together, we will reinvigorate our club,
engage with the local community with in-person events, learn together with educational programs and strengthen our ties with networking socials.

I want to assure you that we are here to listen, to learn, and to lead. Whether you are a seasoned advertising professional, a student eager to learn, or an enthusiast looking to connect, we welcome you
with open arms. We are here to make your voices heard and your ideas realized. Our success will be defined by the dedication, enthusiasm, and commitment of each and every member of our club.
