Advocacy & Action: Advertising Day on the Hill is an important and exciting event designed to dramatically demonstrate to lawmakers the power and passion of the advertising industry’s grassroots network – the members of the American Advertising Federation’s local clubs and federations from across the country.

Speakers at the Advocacy and Action conference will be key players in making and implementing the laws that most directly impact the advertising industry. Speakers will include representatives of Congressional leadership as well as senior members of the tax writing and commerce committees—the two committees with the most direct jurisdiction over the advertising industry. We will draw our speakers from both sides of the aisle, as well as both sides of the Capitol. 2013 speakers included FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez and Rep. Pat Tiberi, R-Ohio, chairman of the House Ways and Means Revenue Subcommittee.
