About The American Advertising Federation-Cleveland

MORE THAN ADS – MORE THAN A CLUB

WELCOME, ONE AND ALL

AAF-Cleveland is more than you ever thought. We’re a diverse community where artists rub shoulders with number crunchers. Where media professionals hang out with film makers. Where seasoned pros mentor the next generation of great thinkers.

It’s a place where folks come to build their careers, exchange ideas or just hang out and have a little fun. Whatever line of work you’re in, whatever your goals, whatever your interests, you’ll feel welcome at AAF-Cleveland.

WE’RE 300 MEMBERS WORKING FOR YOU

At AAF-Cleveland, our mission is to help each of our members achieve the highest level of success.

AAF-Cleveland is a community that looks out for each other. That roots for each other. That helps each other achieve their goals.

In an industry where change is constant, AAF-Cleveland has been the creative heart of Northeast Ohio’s business community for over a century. Founded in 1901, AAF-Cleveland brings together innovative, imaginative people working – or aspiring to work – in advertising, marketing, digital media, public relations, and sales.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMMING

AAF-Cleveland provides year-round programming that helps our members gain knowledge, build networks, and have fun. We also support the next generation of communications professionals through our Education Foundation and use our talents to better the Greater Cleveland community with our Public Service Programs.

From our annual American Advertising Awards, which celebrate the incredible work coming out of the Cleveland advertising community, to happy hours that bring hall-of-famers and young professionals together, there are opportunities to make connections and become more inspired all year long.  See our AAFCLE Membership Guide.
