AAF Baton Rouge prides itself on many years of public and community service, awards and recognition, and fellowship with our friends in this truly unique business. The AAF-BR consists 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. The AAF membership includes more than 400 corporations, 216 clubs and federations, and 133 college chapters, together creating a unified network of almost 50,000 affiliated members dedicated to the good of advertising.
For decades, the AAF-BR has been a valuable and dedicated community partner. We organize club-wide food drives, produce public service advertising campaigns and provide scholarships and a variety of educational opportunities for LSU, Southern University and other local students. We also hold an annual ADDY® Awards show. To top it off, the federation has won the District 7 Division III Club of the Year eleven (11) times. We are also a three (3)-time winner of the Division III Club of the Year, named by the National organization.
We are proud to be an active part of the local community. And, though we’re more than 60 years old, we haven’t slowed down; however, we have gained a little wisdom.
