We think our student members are the next big thing, which drives us to support them the best we can. Students gain scholarships, deeply discounted access to events, award competitions and chances to volunteer and get involved in our club. Without the help they provide, Ad Fed simply wouldn't be the same.

Take it a step further and form a chapter


College chapters are groups affiliated and recognized by the national organization, and being one certainly has its benefits. Through chapters, the AAF provides more than 5000 students with industry experience and exposure, professional development opportunities and recruitment connections on a national level. Other added benefits are camaraderie, recognition, participation in national AAF student award competitions, and an invitation to the annual college chapter conference.

College chapters require $55/student and a faculty mentor. To find out more about national AAF college chapters and to register, please visit:
