AAF Roanoke has been the victim of a larger embezzlement scheme involving a former member of our board.

We have reported the incident to the authorities, and are cooperating with all local and state agencies during the investigation.

We were both shocked and saddened that a longtime member of our board would commit such a criminal act, but are committed to navigating through this legal process, however lengthy, and recovering the strong financial footing of our organization.

We value our members, sponsors and industry partners and want to assure you that we are taking steps to ensure such an act will not happen again.

AAF Roanoke’s public service, diversity and educational programs will continue to serve our region. Our board is strong and determined to recover. In addition, we have been fortunate to have support at our AAF District and National levels.

AAF Roanoke would like to thank our members and community for your ongoing support and understanding during this challenging time.
