“When I want to connect with other people in my industry, I know where to find them. When people come to me asking who can they reach out to for a service or job, I know where to direct them. The friends and connections I’ve made through AAF over the past 5 years are irreraplaceable to me and it's been an honor to serve the Jax ad community!”
