AOL, AAF Invite All "Future Advertising Executives" to 2007 AAF Student Conference

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The American Advertising Federation (AAF) announced this week its 2007 AAF Student Conference. The conference is sponsored by AOL and will be held October 18–19 at AOL Headquarters in Dulles, Va.

"Through the support of AOL, we are able to bring together a remarkable group of students, academics and corporate leaders to celebrate the future of the advertising profession and strengthen our commitment to the evolution of advertising," said AAF President and CEO Wally Snyder. "The AAF acknowledges that the most compelling way to lead is by example, and to help demonstrate this, we bring together former AAF college chapter members that have realized great success to share their experiences."

The AAF Student Conference is designed to provide students with the training and education necessary to enter into today’s advertising industry. The two-day event includes panel discussions on transitioning into the advertising work force, renowned speakers and workshops on topics such as interviewing, résumé writing and career development.

This year’s program features speakers and presentations beneficial to professional development in the fields of marketing, advertising and media. Former National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) team members will reveal “what it takes to win” and how the competition influenced their career paths, as many top agencies use NSAC to recruit the advertising industry’s newest talent.
