Welcome to AAF Columbus!

Our name and logo are different, but our commitment to our members and to the advertising industry remains the same. As AAF Columbus, we are thinking nationally and acting locally through a more solid partnership with our parent organization, the American Advertising Federation (AAF). Our partnership puts us at the forefront in unifying the local, regional and national connections and resources that impact our membership and community.

Why AAF Columbus?

AAF, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the glue that holds together more than 200 local clubs across the country representing 40,000 advertising professionals and more than 200 AAF college chapters, with more than 6,500 student members. Add to that nearly 100 blue-chip corporate members—and you begin to see the power of our national affiliation, connecting us all within one amazing, nationally coordinated grassroots network.
