Sixty advertising clubs entered the 2008-09 national competition, and 297 entries were received. The entries were judged by association professionals outside the AAF. There are five divisions of competition and clubs compete, based on size.

This is a great confirmation of all we do, and how well we do it, Alta J.

We raise the level of advertising, marketing and communications by enriching our members experience through a series of monthly events and programs that add value and remain relevant to our ever-evolving industries.
