Join an AAF Committee

AAF Madison has many opportunities for area professionals to be more engaged in our club. Here are just some of the ways you can contribute.

Community Outreach

The Community Outreach committee was developed in 2016 to utilize the resources of AAF Madison to plan and implement short-term volunteer projects in response to community needs of non-profit organizations in the greater Madison area. Needs may include, but are not limited to, creation of identity materials, public relations support, social media support, digital support or branding strategy. The committee partners with the organization to determine and assist with specific projects. Our committee members have a wide array of diverse skills that are put to work to reach the desired project short and long term goals. We welcome you to join our committee or refer a non-profit organization in need of assistance.
