Member-Get-a-Member Campaign

The Aluminum Anodizers Council has an exciting new program for members – the Member-Get-a-Member Campaign as part of an effort to involve more organizations in the AAC. Here is what this program entails:

  • A current member sponsors a new Firm or Supplier member, that sponsor member will pay a reduced dues rate for the following year – 50% off the joining members’ rate not to exceed their current member dues rate.
  • In addition, the new member will receive a free Anodizing Essentials Workshop (Level 1) registration (currently a $400 value!).

A Message to AAC

Recently, AAC member Jack Humble reached out to AAC to express his thoughts about the value he sees as a member of the Council. We were very pleased to receive this note and would like to share it with you.

We would also like to thank Jack for his years of support and contribution to AAC. It is because of members like him that we are able to bring the quality programs, support and camaraderie of which we are so proud.

Below is the note sent by Mr. Jack Humble.

To my valued colleagues:

As my term on the Board of Directors draws to a close, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to everyone at the Aluminum Anodizers Council for what has been a very rewarding and fulfilling experience.

Since joining the AAC nine years ago, it has been an honor to work alongside some of the finest and most talented people in our industry. It’s been a privilege to serve as both a Director and Promotion Committee Chairman. I remain committed to helping this vital organization achieve its objectives and will continue to contribute all my resources as a corporate member.

I feel membership and involvement as a volunteer offers personal growth and professional enrichment by networking with industry peers who share common goals and interests. Volunteering is a valuable opportunity to not only shape the direction of our organization but also the industry that deeply affects us all. I encourage all in our industry to consider membership in the AAC.

It has been my pleasure to serve the Board and I look forward to working together again in the coming years as we continue to promote anodizing as the finish of choice for aluminum.

Best regards,

Jack Humble
