The purpose of AAF Tri-Cities is to connect members to each other through ongoing programs and events aimed at strengthening our local advertising and creative community. We help link students with employers, working professionals to like-minded peers, business to business and vendors to buyers – all with the goal of enhancing member careers, business and overall success in this field. As we come together with a focus on inclusivity, emphasizing connection rather than competition, the whole advertising community benefits.
AAF Tri-Cities provides an environment where members (including students and working professionals alike) can embrace learning and growth that builds personal and professional confidence. This isn’t a popularity contest or elitist club, it’s a community. We present opportunities to grow your skillsets and reinforce industry best practices through speakers, events and volunteer service. Together, we’ll hold each other accountable to be the most thoughtful, inclusive and honest version of ourselves.
AAF Tri-Cities is managed by a dedicated volunteer board and subsequent committees consisting of local advertising professionals of all ages and backgrounds. By working together, we create a more vibrant, impactful and supportive advertising community for everyone. The local board works to establish club goals while developing activities and events to best serve the membership and greater Mid-Columbia and Tri-Cities Community.
The AAF Tri-Cities board welcomes professionals and students in various positions to help the creative community grow. Opportunities in helping plan events, workshops, speakers, social gatherings, The annual American Advertising Awards, and much more provide a great way to contribute to the club.
