The 2019 AAF Central Region Conference will create a platform where everyone can connect with someone or something new, find a unique way to communicate, and celebrate together what makes our industry great. We want to generate and elevate a positive perception of communication and storytelling.

With two tracks, the Professional Development track features keynotes and breakout sessions that concentrate on discipline specific ideas and concepts that can be implemented anywhere. We’re talking about global ideas that can be implemented on a local level and big ideas that can be done with small budgets. There will be something for everyone whether you work in media, sales, creative, web, production, or the like.

Special keynotes include:

Debbie Millman, host of the popular podcast "Design Matters"

Adam Morgan, Executive Creative Director at Adobe

Todd Henry author of "The Accidental Creative"

Matt Keck & Jeremy Cline from VML Y&R in Kansas City

The Leadership track focuses on helping AAF leaders grow their clubs and facilitate success through proven content like Club Roundtables and sharing sessions, AAF Membership Review, Board Development, Operational Best Practices, and Diversity & Inclusion.

A full list of speakers and topics can be view at

2-DAY PASS >> $300
