On April 14, 2011, members of the AAF-7th District will once again converge on Baton Rouge for the three-day AAF District 7 Spring Convention. Not only will the conference be attended by advertising professionals from the five state area of Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Louisiana, but the Spring Convention is also the host of the AAF-Student Advertising Competition in which students from 31 universities from AAF-7th District will compete for an opportunity to represent the District in the national competition. If this seems like déjà vu, it’s because we hosted this Convention in 2009, when our own Curtis Vann was proclaimed the Kingfish of the District. But as everyone knows, behind every king is his queen. And we’re celebrating Queen Elizabeth “Tootie” Perry as she takes the throne for the next year as Governor of AAF-7th District! But to pull off this royal coronation, we need your help! We need committee members for:

Decorations, Hospitality Suite, Creative/Promotion, Speakers/Workshops, Registration, Student Competition, Sponsorships, Pub Crawl, Student Reception, District ADDYs, Governor’s Gala

Whatever your skill or interest, we have a committee for you! To volunteer or for more information, e-mail Kendra Kimmons at kkimmons2@cox.net.
