January Message from the President

Posted by Director on January 3, 2020

It’s 2020! I know you knew that already, but it’s just so fun to say! I’ve been so pumped up knowing we’re at the beginning of a whole new decade. I hope it is one that brings success, prosperity and excitement to the Toledo advertising community (aka, you guys). 
After a busy November, we ended the year on a quiet note in terms of events. Don’t think we weren’t busy, though. Behind the scenes, we’ve been getting ready to kick off the new decade with some exciting events. On January 15, we’ll be at MadAve Group for this month’s luncheon “Bullsh*t we wish someone would’ve told us 30 years ago,” featuring two of our Silver Medal Winners, Terry Lesniewicz and Dan Weeks. We’re really excited to host these two industry legends while enjoying catering from Focaccia’s. Space is limited, so I’d recommend you register now if you don’t want to miss out. The luncheon is made possible with the help of our venue sponsor, MadAve Group. If any of your companies have the room and are interested in hosting a program or social event in your space, let's chat!
This month, we’re also getting ready our biggest event of the year, the American Advertising Awards (ADDYs) on February 20th at The Valentine Theatre. We are accepting submissions now until January 10 so enter now. Printed entries will need to be dropped off Friday, January 10th between 1pm and 4pm at MadAve Social Club. A huge thank you goes out to Madhouse, who has been designing all promotional creative for this year’s event. 
Lastly, be ware we will be bugging you for donations for AdBID, the next couple of months. We’re requesting donations of media packages, creative and production services, printing, photography, videography, web design, consulting along with  general donations of restaurant and retail gift cards, gift baskets, home maintenance, décor items and other offerings. Let us know if you have something to donate. 
Now, I’ll let you go so you can go get your ADDY submissions ready…
