AAF Cincinnati to Bring Home Five 2012 Club Achievement Awards from ADMERICA! 2012

Each year, the AAF honors its top affiliate clubs in eight categories in each of four club divisions based on club size. AAF Cincinnati entered all eight categories including advertising education, communications, diversity, government relations, club operations, membership, programs and public service.

A part of Division II, clubs with 250 to 499 members, AAF Cincinnati will pick up its Club Achievement plaques at an awards luncheon during “ADMERICA! 2012” Austin, Texas, in June. President-elect Mike Zitt, who will be traveling to Austin along with President Lori Krafte, Executive Director Judy Thompson and Ad2 President Stephanie Ovart, will accept the following awards:

  • First place in Programs
  • Second place in Communications
  • Second place in Membership
  • Second place in Cultural Diversity
  • Third place in Government Relations

During the Club Achievement luncheon, AAF Cincinnati will also be acknowledged for its participation in a cash prize given to each of the first place winners in the Government Relations category. That award, initiated in 2011 and sustained in partnership with Frost Brown Todd LLC, is called the Richard M. Goehler Award in remembrance of Dick Goehler, a former partner in the law firm who was a director of AAF Cincinnati when he passed away in 2011.

AAF Cincinnati, formerly known as AdClub Cincinnati, is an incorporated nonprofit affiliate of (and one of the original 1905 founding members of) the American Advertising Federation (AAF). Its mission: “To advance the region's advertising and communications community by creating opportunities for its members to exchange ideas, enrich careers and inspire creativity.” AAF Cincinnati has about 300 members including those in Ad2, a division for young professionals 18-32 years old.
