A Letter from the President

Hello AAF Miami members,

If I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you yet, I’d like to start by introducing myself. My name is Michael Campos, I’m the Co-Founder and Chief Strategist at neuelane. I’ve had the privilege of serving our organization as a board member over the last eight years, and I am honored to be your new AAF Miami President.

My story with AAF started as a college student. I joined the college chapter and began volunteering at events, assisting the board with anything they needed. The following year, I was elected President of MIU’s college chapter, and before I knew it, I was President of Ad 2 Miami for two years, which to this date was one of the most rewarded experiences in my young career. I also had the pleasure of serving as the Education Chair for the 4th District for three years in a row, which allowed me the opportunity to award scholarships to students across the state.

During my journey with AAF, I’ve been fortunate enough to forge relationships and connected with mentors that helped shape me into who I am today, and who I will be in the years and decades to come. It was my opportunity to mingle the movers-and-shakers of the industry, while getting to know them on a more personal level. For this, I will forever be indebted to the organization.

That being said, the industry has changed, and so have we.

We just rebranded, built a new website and have a new format for events and fundraisers moving forward.

Our focus moving forward is on supporting our community, advocating for the industry, and knowledge sharing. Our mandate includes government relations, professional development, advertising education, mentorships, student scholarships, and recognition of excellence.

If you’re interested in getting more involved with our initiatives above, there’s no better time than right now to get started. And if you’re not a member, what are you waiting for?
