May Message from the President

Posted by Director on May 6, 2020

What month is it again? My calendar says it’s May so I guess I’ll go with that. Whether you’re reading this from home or you’re back at your office, I hope you are all safe and well. Thank you for your patience and support as we adjust to this new normal. 
Believe it or not, we do have some recaps from April. Probably the most exciting is the announcement of the District 5 ADDY Winners. Congratulations to Your Media People – who took home a Silver and a Judge’s choice, and HansonHARTMadhouse and RP Marketing for being awarded Silver ADDY Awards. We’re proud to have such great Toledo representation at the district level.  
We also had a great Webinar, presented by Hope Sowders of Mohawk. By popular demand, we have another Mohawk Webinar this Thursday, A Maker’s Field Guide to Envelopes. These are free programs, but you do have the option to make a donation. For Thursday’s program, we are sending collected donations to United Way of Greater Toledo. 
Next week, join us for Keep Your Business Thriving in the New Normal, a webinar presented by HOT on May 12th at 11am. It is a free event but you do need to register. Keep an eye on your inbox as we develop future virtual programming. If you have an idea for a webinar or virtual social event, we’d love to hear it. Please email Kelly at director@aaftoledo.org
Thank you so much to everyone who donated, bid and promoted AdBID 2020. I was amazed at how many people we had participate in trying to help us reach our goal, especially with everything going on. Stay tuned to our social media for the announcement of our final numbers, and for our donation to Grubs for Scrubs. We do still have a few no-bid items available. If you’re interested, please contact Kelly with a reasonable offer.
Finally, I want to thank all of you for your feedback and input as we continue to find ways to add value for our members. We had a great response rate to our survey and look forward to implementing changes that will help our club evolve to a new level.
