A Note From Leadership

AAF- Members & Friends,


We want to take a moment and thank you for another successful ADDY Awards season! Last month we celebrated the amazing work being done in the Louisville industry, and we are looking forward to what the next level of the American Advertising Awards competition brings for our winners. Additionally, we want to thank the many partners and volunteers that made this year's awards possible – we are grateful for your continued support!

With spring just around the corner, so is our annual Spring Day at the Downs event. This year's event will be especially exciting for me, as this will be my first chance to see many of you since taking over as Executive Director! I hope you all will join me for a day filled with fun, networking and plenty of Kentucky tradition.

AAF-Louisville has had an exciting start to 2020 and I am looking forward to what we can accomplish in the coming months! Please feel free to drop me a note anytime at


– Allison Deely, Executive Director
