His recent election at the AAF National Conference in San Francisco was the capstone to many years of volunteer service, during which he has served as Chairman of the Central Region of the AAF, District Governor of the AAF and president of the Milwaukee Advertising Club. In this position, Narrai will draw on his strong leadership skills and extensive industry experience to help the AAF achieve its mission of maintaining integrity while fostering innovation and growth in the advertising industry.

“Because of its involvement in critical industry issues such as socially responsible advertising to children, the AAF’s impact on Southeastern Wisconsin’s ad community is substantial,” said Narrai. “My new role with the AAF will put me at the forefront of issues affecting the advertising industry nationally, as well as locally.”
