The Advocacy and Action conference activities will begin with a networking dinner, allowing attendees the opportunity to make new, and renew older, acquaintances and contacts. The featured speaker will be a well-known news personality or political strategist who will give the audience an overview of the current political situation in Washington and an update on the timely issues of the day.

Speakers at the Advocacy & Action conference are key players in making and implementing the laws that most directly impact the advertising industry. Speakers 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.
Jim Davidson, Polsinelli
Lou Mastria, Digital Advertising Alliance
Mike Signorelli, Venable
Mary Engle, Federal Trade Commission

Advertising Day on the Hill
AAF’s unique strength in Washington, DC comes from being a grassroots organization. We represent all aspects of the advertising industry from all parts of the country. That strength will be unleashed as conference attendees head to Capitol Hill to meet with their elected representatives. Senators and Representatives take notice when constituents care enough to come to meet with them in Washington, DC. A strong showing of the AAF grassroots will send a message that further underscores the positions being advocated.
