Club Achievement

The Details And The Winners

Club Achive winners_2015

Each year, the AAF honors top clubs in eight categories: advertising education, communications, diversity, government relations, club operations, membership, programs and public service. Additionally, a “Club of the Year” is chosen in each division. The clubs of the year are determined by the total score of their entries in the eight categories. Clubs and federations are divided into five divisions based on membership size and compete within those divisions:

Division I: 500+ members

Division II: 250 to 499 members

Division III: 100 to 249 members

Division IV: Under 100 members

Division V: Ad 2 clubs

The Award Winning Ideas Books for 2013 is available for viewing. This idea book has all of the first place winning entries from clubs in all divisions and all categories. Take some time to review it and you will learn about some successful programs you might be able to adopt in your club.

This is also a great time to start thinking about entering the competition this coming year. Ask yourself what areas, if not all, your club excels in and what categories you will want to enter. The Award Winning Ideas Book can act as a “how-to” guide to assist you in entering and winning AAF’s National club Achievement Competition.
