Finance Team Report

On January 29, 2009, the finance team met before class. We decided that we are going to have a bake sale to be held on February 12, 2009, at the student union building from 11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Any donated baked items from the advanced advertising class members are greatly appreciated. If you are able to work/attend the bake sale during that time, please do so. Also, the $35 fee toward the membership in the American Advertising Federation needs to be paid by February 7, 2009. Therefore, we will start collecting the $35 on Tuesday February 3, 2009, and it needs to be given to Lisa Lane or a member of the finance team no later than February 5, 2009 during class. Last but not least, remember to start looking for people/businesses/organizations to donate for the ad. As discussed in class, the ads can be sold for $25, $50, & $100+, depending on the size of the ad wanted.

That's all for now,
Lisa Lane

Welcome to TAMUK Advertising

Welcome to the blogsite for the 2009 Texas A&M University-Kingsville American Advertising Federation 2009 team. Our team will compete in the AAF District 10 National Student Advertising Competition in Houston, this April. TAMUK is competing against schools from four other states in District. Schools will come from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Among the prominent universities in the competition are Oklahoma, Louisiana State, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech, Texas Christian University, Tulsa, Texas-Arlington and others. The TAMUK AD Team for 2009 is attempting to secure funds for its trip. It plans to raise most of its money with fund raisers and some school support. However, the $5,000 tab is hefty for us. If you would like to help, please contact Dr. Manuel Flores at 361-593-3401 or Todd Lucas, M.F.A., at 361-593-3050. Stay tuned to this blog to monitor our team's progress and to see how we do against bigger universities with established and prestigious advertising programs.
