Here in Lafayette, LA the Acadiana Advertising Federation are about to kick off their year – with (what else) a LAUNCHEON – yes, it’s a launch and a luncheon, and I’m proud that I will be speaking about ideas (and starting things) at this first meeting of a new AAF year. There will be some fun too!

I know that most of you readers aren’t able to get to LFT by Friday but you can always research your local American Advertising Federation chapter and see what is happening there. It’s not just for Advertising Professionals, it’s for anyone who works / wants to work in a Creative field or is just interested in hearing great speakers. I have been a member for a few years, I joined primarily to hear the speakers and have learned so much and been inspired by many of them.

This luncheon is sponsored by my friends Hulco Printers Inc and the creativity exercise is sponsored by The Lab, Handcrafted Coffee & Comforts. (Both of these are also sponsors of this blog – just goes to show what forward-thinking and very cool companies they are)
