Krafte has served in various capacities on the AAF-C Board including as president; was chair of AAF-C’s 2012 Digital Non Conference and is assisting with this year’s event; and provides legal advice to the organization as needed.

“Our Distinguished Service Award is not an annual recognition, but rather is an honor we present only when a volunteer has made a truly significant contribution over time to help sustain us, achieve goals, and reach to higher levels,” said Judy Thompson, AAF-C Executive Director. “Lori has given of her time and her professional expertise. As a board member, committee chair and volunteer, she consistently goes above and beyond. Under her leadership our fall Digital Non Conference far exceeded our goals.”
