Greetings From Our New President

Hello AAF Gainesville Members,

I know it has been a rough couple of days with Irma making her way across our area. I hope everyone is well and did not receive very much damage.

I would like to introduce myself to those of you who do not know me – I’m Nita Chester, your President of AAF Gainesville for 2017-18. We have some exciting programs in store for you with our first on September 16 – a Game Day Tailgate – starting at 11:30 at 231 Architecture Building – Stadium Road just off of 13th Street. We are joining AIGA with FREE food from Gator’s Dockside and drinks to our members, $5.00 if you are not a member. This will be first come first serve.

As programs are scheduled, we will be more actively letting you know ahead of time who will be speaking and where. Membership benefits will include FREE attendance to all programs and socials, excluding the American Advertising Awards.


We are working on getting a quality speaker for our October program and November we will have a joint luncheon with FPRA.

I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year! See you at the Tailgate.
