Our luncheon series will continue with some of the hottest speakers in the country. Our speaker series is always a hit, with lunch served at favorite local locations and intriguing topics for all professions. Keep an eye out for upcoming dates.
AAFter Hours panels are cocktail hour events that feature hors d’oeurves and cocktails for networking along with a panel of specialized professionals on chosen subjects. These events always pack the house and are light on the wallet.
The American Advertising Awards is our largest event every year. The American Advertising Awards, formerly the ADDYs, is the industry’s largest creative competition, and the only local competition that is able to get your work awarded at the national level. The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward excellence in the art of advertising. As a member, you receive a steep discounted rate on entries. We will also continue our own local Advertising Icon Awards where we celebrate and recognize spectacular talent in our market.
