2022-2023 Applause Awards

November 3, 2022

New for AAF-Akron Members

Earn points throughout the year by doing things you would do normally — attend events, enter the American Advertising Awards, and more. This friendly, point-based competition allows us to recognize and reward our members’ service and engagement with the club.

We’ll keep track of your points from Oct. 2022 – Oct. 2023. We’ll tally up the results and recognize our top tier earners with great prizes, like a free individual membership, at our 2023 Annual Meeting.

This new program was announced at the 2022 Annual Meeting. Members in attendance each received 20 pts for attending.
