#EmbraceAAF 1


On July 12th – an email will be coming to all presidents from AAF National about Engage. They need each club to designate an administrator:

  1. Once they have the administrator’s information in the system, they will provide the administrator with more information about how to get educated on the system and how to use it
  2. They are producing a FAQ sheet and videos to watch on demand
  3. They will also help the Admins update their rosters

>> Governor Diversity Challenge <<

A challenge to all members to go out and cross the lines 

As many of you recall, Baton Rouge had an especially tough year in 2016. There was a torrential flood and a series of devastating shootings in the community on the heels of shootings in Dallas, Texas. As a community, we still struggle with exactly how to move forward. But move forward we will.

I urge each of the clubs to reach out and perform a community service, attend a community event, or simply go and do something with a group of people who are different from you. There will be a cash reward to the club that makes a significant impact regarding this challenge.


Deadline is July 20, 2017

Nominations are now being accepted for the Governor’s Award. This award, established in October 1985, is totally coordinated and funded by former District 7 Governors. This award is also known as “The Volunteer of the Year.”

Nominations will be sent out to former governors, regional directors, presidents and officers.

This award will be presented during the Leadership Conference, August 24-27 in Tuscaloosa.
