From the President...
Thank you for visiting our web site, and for your interest in the local chapter of the American Advertising Federation.
The AAF is the advertising trade association that represents the ad industry in its entirety. AAF’s 130 corporate members are advertisers, agencies, and media companies that comprise the nation’s leading brands and corporations. AAF’s national network of 210 ad clubs and local ad federations is home to 50,000 advertising professionals. In addition, AAF connects industry with an academic base through its 210 college chapters. It is this diverse membership that allows the AAF to be the leading voice for advertising-friendly government policies on the national, regional, and local levels; a leading proponent of diversity programs in our industry; and a leading force for education initiatives. It is also what allows us to hold the largest creative advertising competition in the country — the ADDY® Awards.
AAF educates members on the latest trends in advertising, marketing, and government issues with a variety of programs. Attendance at the AAF National Conference, Joint Government Affairs Conference, Legislative Training Sessions, and the Mosaic Forum provide members with the information necessary to stay current and competitive in the industry.
If you’re considering becoming a member, I encourage you to attend one of our luncheon events. Those who make up our membership are “the people to know” in the local advertising/media industry. You’ll be glad you came. In addition, the benefits of membership are extensive. Your membership with the AAF, through your company or organization, connects you to the entire advertising community and provides you with great opportunities for networking, education, and valuable discounts. AAF membership allows members access to discounts on the tools that are needed to stay current and successful in the industry. Special discounts are available to AAF members for services ranging from subscriptions to trade publications to shipping to web and telecommunication services. Please visit our “membership” area of this web site for full details.
If you’re already a member, thank you. You know the value of membership and we appreciate your active participation. We rely on you to step up and serve on one of the various committees that keep our organization going. The talents you will lend to your local ad club will strengthen the AAF on every level. You are what makes the AAF the Unifying Voice for Advertising.
