Governor’s Update 2019

Happy New Year!

It’s about halfway through your presidential terms and a great time to reflect on your accomplishments and goals.  I’ve been thrilled to hear about your successes on our calls and I’ve also heard some of you ran into some issues and roadblocks. Perhaps you’re operating with very few volunteers. Maybe you couldn’t get the financing in place for a new initiative.  We’ve certainly all been there, myself included.  We are all volunteers with complex career and personal lives and there just never seems to be enough time in the day.  My hope is that you found ways to divide tasks more broadly and get investment in your club by adding a personal touch to your members, making them feel like they “own” a piece of your club’s success. 
 
I want to emphasize that your District Board is here for you. We exist to advocate for you at the national level (District 3’s David Campbell is the Council of Governors Chair so you know you’re well covered!). The Council of Governors has worked hard to provide resources at AAF.org  (Who We Are/Club Leader Resources). And certainly, as you review areas you may continue to struggle, I ask that you reach out and let District 3 Leaders help your club. 

I’ve seen great dialogue with District 3 American Advertising Awards Chairs Melissa Harper and Ace Evans and I want to applaud their responsiveness and knowledge. 

I know you’re currently in the throngs of take in day, judging and gala planning and we at District 3 are here for you.

Cheers to the new year and your continued success!
Megan Telencio
Governor, AAF District 3

Shelley Magee Receives Pat Martin Excellence in District Leadership Award from the American Advertising Federation

Shelley Magee receives the Pat Martin Excellent in District Leadership Award

Shelley Magee, Sales Manager for ABC Columbia was awarded the Pat Martin Excellence in District Leadership Award from the American Advertising Federation on June 8 at their annual conference in Chicago.

Pat Martin was among the first women to break into the advertising industry. She continued to be a leader throughout her career: as the first woman ad director in one company, as a pioneer in the integration of advertising; promotion and sales training; and as the first woman chair of the American Advertising Federation.

The Pat Martin Excellence in District Leadership Award is given to a member of the AAF who exemplifies Pat’s work by making outstanding contributions to his or her District.

Shelley Magee has been a member and leader within AAF District 3 of The American Advertising Federation for nearly 20 years. She began as an active volunteer in AAF of the Midlands, eventually becoming President in 2008.  She then took her leadership abilities to District 3 and was elected Governor in 2012. Her great work has had a profound effect on the success of both the Club and District.

As District Governor, Shelley instituted the widely successful Quality Club Competition. This program gives District 3 Ad Clubs tools for strong leadership and templates to follow for success.  It then rewards them for outstanding accomplishments in different areas of operations.  As a result, District 3 has produced nine AAF National Clubs of the Year since the program was implemented.  As past Governor, Shelley remains active in the District and continues to educate and inspire new club board members and leaders. In addition, she helps assure the District’s financial stability by helping to raise thousands of dollars through the sponsorship programs she has developed.

Shelley was elected Chair of the AAF Council of Governors in 2016, where she could help with the success of AAF Clubs and Districts across the country.  Together with the other officers and members of the COG, she helped develop the Council’s first strategic three-year plan to help provide continuity in leadership, values and goals from year to year. Shelley’s vision ensured that the plan would be woven into the overall goals of AAF and become a valuable tool for Governors in the leadership of their own Districts. An integral part of the plan was the creation of AAF University, a series of video presentations that provide AAF Club leaders across the county with the tools they need to grow, adapt, and position their organizations for success.
“All of us across Shelley’s home district of AAF District 3 could not be more proud of her for this accomplishment,” said AAF District 3 Governor Chris Dodd. “Her inspiring leadership has provided the tools for AAF chapter clubs across the country to adapt and thrive through the challenges any entity may be facing.”
