Host A Friend-Raiser Dinner Party for AERO!

Celebrate our history, help build our future.

Celebrate the deep roots of our successes and the seeds we’re planting for our future by gathering some friends and introducing (or re-introducing) them to AERO. What better way to celebrate our history and continue building our future than over a delicious meal? And who better to host such a party than our dedicated members who care about AERO more than anyone?

September marks the month of friend-raising for AERO. Please join us in spreading the word about our great organization and inviting your friends to our annual meeting in October where more merriment and meaningful conversation will abound. Read on for details on how you can pass the AERO spirit around.
