The Amarillo chapter of the American Advertising Federation will host AAF President, James Edmund Datri Wednesday and Thursday.
This the first time the national chapter president and CEO will visit Amarillo. Datri will speak about the state of the American Advertising Federation and advertising in America, what this means to members, advertisers, media and consumers.
Datri has been engaged in advertising issues throughout his career. During his time on Capitol Hill, he worked to protect the full deductibility of advertising expenses. He worked with the AAF during the foundation of the Mosaic Center on Multiculturalism, and on the AAFs first Summit on Diversity in the advertising industry, held in Washington, D.C. He also worked with the Clinton White House on the executive order signed in October of 2000 that established the first multicultural advertising guidelines for federal government departments and agencies. Datri serves on the Board of Directors of the Ad Council, the Advertising Educational Foundation, and the
National Advertising Review Council.
