Well, we’re still here and we’re better than ever. Today, we announced that our name is changing from the Advertising Club of Buffalo to AAF Buffalo (the Buffalo chapter of the American Advertising Federation).
Why the change?
In short, we wanted to better align ourselves with the American Advertising Federation at the national level, which we’ve been a chapter of for many years.
After a trip to ADMERICA, the American Advertising Federation’s national conference in California this past spring, we came away with a few things: a realization that we’re a strong chapter in the national advertising community, an appreciation for the national connections accessible to us through AAF, and new ideas on how to provide our members with the most value.
Most of our members haven’t realized that they’re also a member of AAF’s national network of organizations, which includes a host of resources, connections, and discounts. In fact, nearly 20% of our annual membership fee pays for access to AAF.
With input from our members over the last several months and unanimous approval from our board, we believe this is a natural and positive progression for our organization.
What to expect:
With our new brand, our logo isn’t the only thing that’s changing.
This move will help us transition our organization from a “social club” to a professional resource for members to gain greater exposure to the industry while staying current with the latest trends. This includes our first ever Spotlight Speaker Series, member-only Skillshops and more.
We’re evolving – and we hope you’re ready to do the same. To become a member or renew your current membership, please visit aafbuffalo.com/membership.
