This year, in particular, many leaders in our district are finding it difficult to manage the finances of their clubs due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fortunately, District 2 is in a position to be able to give back. To that end, D2 Leadership is offering a one-time grant to each of the clubs it serves.

Your grant will be based on the club's three-year average of dues paid to AAF. We've established a floor of $2000 to help the smallest clubs but did not establish a cap. In total, approximately $31,000 worth of grants will be awarded to the AAF District 2 community.

To take advantage of this opportunity, we ask that each club report back to us on how the grant is used. Our hope is that it will allow you to grow membership, enhance programming, assist members of your club who are in need or simply pay your club's bills.

NEXT STEPS:

Club presidents should have received a personal email from D2 Governor John Mulder informing them of their grant amount. Please immediately provide him with an address to send the check, or provide your club's ACH information. The money will be distributed to you immediately following.

Leader. Mentor. Innovator. These are just some of the qualities of a Pat Martin Excellence in District Leadership Award winner. If you know someone working diligently “behind the scenes” on behalf of the District and the AAF, nominate them for this award today: aaf.org/pat.

When Pat Martin began her first job as a copywriter, she was among the first women to break into the advertising industry. She continued to be a leader throughout her career: as the first woman ad director in one company, as a pioneer in the integration of advertising; promotion and sales training; and as the first woman chair of the American Advertising Federation. Pat exemplified ethical practices and served as a role model and mentor. She was also a dedicated leader within the AAF organization and District 2 in particular. As a result of her of her work, the AAF’s District 2 became a powerhouse and was instrumental in strengthening all of the clubs within it.

Ford reads the culture right with new coronavirus response advertising

"We’re living in largely uncharted waters—social distancing, states of emergency—and part of dealing with that will be brands finding a way to exist, operate, and communicate in ways that offer one of some combination of help, hope, and entertainment."

The carmaker replaces its scheduled March Madness ads with two new spots about its car payment relief program.

American Advertising Awards: Reminders and Resources!

Your club has received its American Advertising Awards entries. Now what? Here are three tips to help your club host a successful judging weekend:

1) To save time during your judging weekend, it’s best to have your judges review and score all online/digital entries before arriving to your market. Be sure to give your judges at least 10 days to score all online/digital entries.

2) Has your club ever awarded a Mosaic ADDY Award? If not, the National American Advertising Awards Committee recommends it. A Mosaic ADDY Award can be awarded to one (or more) entries that exemplifies a spirit of diversity and inclusion. The Mosaic ADDY Award should demonstrate understanding and sensitivity of targeted multicultural audiences. Give your judges this description before judging begins so they can be on the lookout for entries that would be deserving of a Mosaic ADDY Award.

3) Judges cannot be from your local market. Remember to recruit a diverse panel of judges.

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries every year from local Club (Ad Club) competitions. The mission of the American Advertising Awards competiti
