Receive discounted rates at club events. So AAF – Cedar Valley hosts fabulous events, which as a member you'll get to attend for a reduced price. That money saved can be spent however you want. We don't judge members who use their savings to buy extra drinks during the socials.

Receive corporate and governmental updates via e-mail.

Here's an easy way to do it—let someone else tell you what you need to know.

Access to "movers and shakers" in our industry. That's self-explanatory. And pretty cool.
