Mission

AAF-Baton Rouge is an affiliate of the American Advertising Federation, the only national organization representing the interests of the entire advertising community. We consist of local professionals based in the fields of advertising, sales promotion, public relations, marketing, production, social media, web development, printing and the buying or selling of advertising. Our mission statement is: Serving, Connecting and Developing Advertising Professionals.

Since 1943, 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.
