Your Membership

Single Memberships breakout to maximize every dollar to keep the club running efficiently for the membership. 22% goes directly to dues outside of the club. We use 19% to cover operational costs, like taxes and fees, and the rest goes right into event programming. As a 501(c) 6, we make no profit on any event we hold, and any extra money that comes in from ticketed events goes back to fund more programming.

Membership Offerings and Beyond

While your membership covers primarily programming, your support also allows us to continue our Public Service, Diversity, and Government Relations efforts. With your membership, we will continue to promote advertising as a profession to high school students through AAF in the Classroom and AdScape.
