Become a member of one of the oldest and largest AAF chapters in the country and start making your mark in the Kansas City advertising history books. Soon, you’ll be on the cover of Ad Age, talking about how you use your National Gold ADDY as a doorstop. You’ll tweet strategic insights and snarky quips, all to get asked personally to headline the next up-and-coming conference keynote. And you’ll turn down job offers in the big cities, knowing Kansas City advertising is the best.*


*We have a legal obligation to tell you this is all conjecture. But we can all dream.


Truthfully, this club can help you become a better advertising professional and help you network with the best of them to work on incredible campaigns and top brands.
