At Strategar we believe in giving back to the community. We are involved in non-profit and professional development organizations, dedicating our spare time to volunteering. Volunteer work often goes unnoticed but there are instances when volunteers get recognized for their work.
Our Brand Story Thinker, Angelica Ocampo was recently recognized at the 2019 American Advertising Federation (AAF) National Club Achievement Awards. As the AAF Dallas Public Service chair, one of her duties was to write a Club Achievement report that recapped club projects and initiatives that helped the non-profit community in Dallas.
Angelica’s work on the Public Service report helped the club place 2nd, an improvement from last year’s 3rd place. Her experience has motivated her to continue as the Public Service chair for the upcoming term.
Strategar’s ties with AAF don’t stop with Angelica, our newest Strategarian, Vivian De La Cruz is also a member. I actually met Vivian at an Ad 2 Dallas event, I was a panelist sharing career advice to a group of young professionals. Vivian is the copy writing chair for the Ad 2 Dallas Marcom team and is working as an account coordinator, writer and social media expert at Strategar.
