Beth Fischer, President   I started serving on the AAF Peoria board three years ago.  I was so impressed with the entries that year at the Addy's that I just felt like I needed to be a part of it.    I have held the position of vice president and VP of Communications during my time with the club.  This year I am currently serving as the president.  I also am serving my second year on our District 6 board as a state representative.    I started my career with PIP Printing and Marketing as a Customer Service Rep, moved into the Storefront Manager or as I put it, Full Time Multi Tasking Ninja. Recently, I was promoted again to Sales Support.  Four years ago I started my own seasonal retail business with two locations.  Since then it has grown into two states and seven locations.
