No tricks just a lot of TREATS!

Victoria Seitz

When I developed this month’s President’s letter I talked to a couple of members to help me make it better. Thank you members! It just reminds me the value of AAF membership and how much I gain from talking with you one-to-one.

Given this you will want to join us for our first ever “Wake up Call” October 7, Thursday at 7:30am to 9am at the Coffee Bean on Orange Street in Redlands.  This is a members’ only event with the goal of helping each other solve problems and address issues.  The topic is up to YOU but you will gain so much from hearing about others’ experiences.  Need a reminder, follow us on twitter at

October 14th is the Adobe Creative Suite (CS ) 5 training at Copies and Ink at 10722 Arrow Route, Rancho Cucamonga from 9 am to Noon.   By attending you have the opportunity to win the Adobe Creative Suite 5 Premium valued at $1799.  For you, our members, registration is free.  You can register right here on the site.  I will see you there!

And for those that know students that could benefit or if you want to come please be my guest!!  On October 13th from 5-7pm we are holding an educational seminar titled, “What does it take to succeed as a graphic designer or Art Director,” with Chief Creative Officer Will Sherwood from Los Angeles.  The Art Institute of the Inland Empire has been gracious to co-host this event with us.  The event is free so RSVP to Christy Oakes at to register.

By the way as an advertising professional you have something to offer so why don’t you become a MENTOR!  Help foster good talent in the IE, contact Christy Oakes at and sign up.

We have some really fantastic programs THIS MONTH and to come.  Next month our featured speaker is a nationally recognized author and attorney who will help you be online and not get SUED!  And our Christmas party is December 9th and will be at Steve Scudder Photography.  We will need a big space because we will be hosting Christmas around the World!

By the way check out our Facebook page, Claus has done a fantastic job!

I look forward to sharing all our Treats with you this month- Happy Halloween!!!

Take care,
