Established April 5, 2005, Mark Johnson Member of the Year Award honors the memory of Mark Johnson, deceased past president from 1997 to 1998 who made a tremendous impact on AAF Dallas. The award is given every year to a member whose beliefs and values align with those demonstrated by Johnson during his years of work for the Dallas Advertising League, now AAF Dallas. These individuals exhibit the greatest commitment to the industry and AAF Dallas through committee involvement, their time and resources invested.
