The Unifying Voice for Advertising
Headquartered in Washington, DC, we are the “Unifying Voice for Advertising.” The AAF has more than 150 local clubs across the U.S. representing nearly 35,000 advertising professionals, connecting and leading the industry. We help more than 4,000 student members kickstart their careers within a 140+ college chapter network with an array of student programs. And, we have more than 60 corporate members who are supportive of our ongoing efforts.
Each year, the AAF hosts numerous programs and initiatives, including the Advertising Hall of Fame, the American Advertising Awards, the National Student Advertising Competition, the Mosaic Center on Multiculturalism and summer Ad Camps for high school
students. We appreciate our members' continued loyalty and industry’s engagement and enthusiasm
surrounding our events—and we look forward to seeing you at our next one.
The American Advertising Federation protects and promotes the well being of advertising. We accomplish this through a unique, nationally coordinated grassroots network of brands, agencies, media companies, local advertising clubs and college chapters.
