Committees

Get Involved – Join a Committee

Unlike other organizations in the area, AAF-Akron is completely supported by volunteers. We rely on the talents and resources of our membership to prosper. And, it’s a win-win situation for all! Our committees provide leadership opportunities and the chance to learn new skills and meet and share ideas with professionals in related fields.

ADDY-JudgWe’re not asking for a lot of time, just a commitment to the overall mission of AAF-Akron, whether it be through planning events or ADDY competition, driving membership or communicating our message. In fact, if every member could volunteer one hour a week, it would greatly decrease the time commitment for everyone involved.

To get involved, review committee descriptions below and then contact a chair (and encourage others to do the same!). AAF-Akron can really benefit from all that our membership has to offer.
