December Message from the President

Posted by Director on December 2, 2019

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” – Buddy The Elf

That’s right, December is here. The holiday is quickly approaching. For those of you who attended Our Favorite Things last month, you might just have your shopping done already! We had another great turnout and so many awesome vendors. People won free stuff. And how about that signature Toledo Spirits cocktail? We couldn’t put on such awesome programs without the help of our 2019 Corporate Sponsor, Spectrum Reach and our 2019-2020 Series Sponsor, PromoHits and, of course, you!

We also teamed up with Press Club of Toledo and PRSA last month for another successful Internship Event. It was so good, it made me wish I was a student! The panel had a great candid discussion filled with valuable tips. I hope those kids were listening! We also connected with some educators we don’t always get to see. In the future, we hope to bring their knowledge and perspective to our Education Committee in an effort to recruit and connect with more students. Let’s keep that homegrown talent right here!

So what does the future bring? This month, we’re focused on a little thing we call the ADDY Awards. We’ve extended the drop off so you actually have until January 10th to submit. But seriously, you’re going to blink and it will be January so just enter now and get it off your list. You can get all of the details from our website, or reach out to Darcie if you have any questions. 

We’re also already collecting donations for AdBid in April. This is our club’s most important fundraiser and the proceeds are what we need to keep providing local advertising professionals (AKA, you) and students with opportunities to network, learn and have fun. If you have an item or a service that you’d like to generously donate to this cause, we will ensure you/your company is promoted not just on the auction website, but also our website and social media channels. Help the club AND get advertising? Sign me up!

I hope you all have an amazing holiday and a stress-free New Year! Can't wait to see you at our 2020 events!
