This Week at Rotary January 7, 2020
Presiding Officer: Mailani Veney
Secretary: Randy Hawthorne
Sgt. At Arms: Maury Halstead
Cashiers: Kate Holman & Don Kucera
Greeters: Todd Crawford & Lisa Lee
Speaker: Clint Runge
Presentation: The State of the Youth Culture: Serving with Different Generations

Generations change. Tastes change. Young adults developed their habits, preferences, and opinions in a different world than most of us did. Trying to understand it all can be overwhelming if brands, politicians, and parents place their generational expectations on the one growing up today. In this short presentation, Clint! will outline the value systems, behaviors and driving beliefs that other generations can use to be more relevant whether you are a company trying to market to them or a grandparent figuring out what is going on with their grandchildren.
Speaker: As the Co-Founder of Archrival, Clint! leads the agency with a big-thinking approach to brand problems. While he’s the kind of guy who likes 7-11 Slurpees and magic tricks, his saving grace is that he understands the dynamic of marketing in youth culture. Clint!s passion for creative has been recognized over the past two decades with as many awards as he’s had all-nighters. Most recently, Archrival was a 2016 Ad Age Agency of the Year. He’s a frequent Rock Paper Scissors competitor and welcomes your challenge.
Happy Birthday, Rotarians!
