AAF-Baton Rouge prides itself on many years of public and community service, awards and recognition, and fellowship with our friends in this unique business. We consist of local professionals based in the fields of advertising, sales promotion, public relations, marketing, production and the buying or selling of advertising. We are an affiliate of the American Advertising Federation, the only national organization representing the interests of the entire advertising community.
For over 70 years, AAF-BR has been a valuable and dedicated community partner. We provide professional development for our members, produce public service campaigns for local nonprofits, provide scholarships and a variety of educational opportunities for LSU, Southern University and other local students, and support the community with a multitude of service activities. Annually, we hold the local American Advertising Federation (ADDY® Awards) to honor our area’s top creative talent, who have the opportunity to then compete on a regional and possibly national level.
Our Advertising Federation is truly the best in the South and one of the best in the nation. As of 2013, the Federation has won the District 7 Division III Club of the Year seventeen times (and counting) since 1993. We are also a four-time winner of the Division III National AAF Club of the Year. This means your board of directors, serving at your pleasure, has consistently fielded an organization that delivers value and a return on your membership investment. We are proud to be an active part of the local community and hope all of our members take advantage of the opportunities afforded within our exciting organization.
