AAFT Annual Christmas Party

The AAFT Annual Christmas Party for 2011 has passed.

The AAFT Annual Christmas Party for 2012 will be even better!

 

AAFT Xmas Letters

Austin Association of Financial Traders (AAFT)

AAFT Annual Christmas Party for 2012


Hello AAFT Traders and Seasons Greeting,

'Tis a time of good cheer for one and all. The Holidays will soon be upon us and AAFT celebrates a year of success by inviting you and yours to our 2012 AAFT Annual Christmas Party on Saturday, December 8th from 7:00 pm until 9:30 pm at Eileen Vanderlee's beautiful Northwest Austin home (see directions and map below).


Come early and stay late as we've pulled out the stops to create a sumptuous buffet of food and drink to put you in good cheer.

Dress is business casual. This is your chance to see those friends you haven't since last year's party. Spouses and partners are welcome and even "urged to attend".


For AAFT members and a guest, your association dues have paid for this party. All non-member attendees will be expected to pay $20 at the door to cover their 2012 AAFT membership dues. 
 
 

 

This is a chance to reap the dividends of your annual dues so be sure to RSVP (not later than December 2nd) at my association email addres:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

For AAFT members and a guest, your association dues have paid for this party. All non-member attendees will be expected to pay $20 at the door to cover their 2013 AAFT membership dues. (Good for one full year!)

 

If it is time for you to renew, you may mail checks in the amount of $20.00 to our new P O Box address:

 

Austin Association of Financial Traders

P O Box 170475

Austin, Texas 78717

 

You may also renew your annual membership for 2013 online at the following URL:

 

http://www.aaft.org/index.php?option=com_acctexp&task=subscribe&usage=2

 

Please be sure to renew no later than December 2nd. (Make sure your check is received by the 2nd if you are mailing it).

 

AAFT Paid Membership is good for one full year. Membership benefits include the AAFT Library checkout privileges, the opportunity to attend the annual AAFT Christmas Party, access to the monthly Presentation Materials, and supports the continuing efforts of AAFT.

  

Please indicate if you are attending or if you will be bringing a guest and your your drink preference - alcohol or non-alcohol so we can accurately predict how much beer or wine to buy (versus soft drinks). If you can't attend there's no need to notify me.


Remember:  Deadline for reservations is Friday, December 2nd. If this date has passed and you would still like to attend, please contact me directly.

Hoping to see you at the party,

Driving Directions to Eileen's Home (See map below or Google map -> 6204 Mesa Drive, Austin, TX 78731)

  2. Turn Right onto Mesa Drive and go up the long hill until you get to 6204 Mesa Drive.
  3. Eileen's home faces a cross street and will be on your left as you go up the hill. When close, look for all the parked cars.
  4. If you get to the stop sign at the top of the hill you've gone too far as it's the first street just below the top of the hill.
  5. You may park on Mesa or the side street. Please respect neighbors' parking.
  6. Enter by walking up Eileen's driveway steps from the Mesa side of the home.
  7. Once at the top of the drive you'll find the party's entrance via the door at the end of the walkway on your left.
  8. Just walk-in and join the festivities!

We are Volunteers

The AAFT Officer Team and SIG Group members are volunteer traders, administrators and managers who have worked together to take AAFT to new heights. AAFT has some wonderfully talented people taking various concepts to the forefront. AAFT has many knowledgable resources among its varied membership.

Volunteering could be as basic as helping with the monthly meeting room setup and tear-down, help with getting the annual Christmas Party supplies to becoming a SIG or AAFT officer.

After all, we're only as good as our members.  So, please give back to AAFT!
