AAF Pittsburgh is a thriving community within the American Advertising Federation, the oldest (established in 1905) and largest advertising trade association in the country. The AAF is the only organization that includes members across all disciplines and career levels in advertising.
AAF Pittsburgh, founded in 1923, isn’t your standard “advertising” club. We’re a group of marketers, creators, analysts, account people, project managers, data nerds, writers, thinkers and doers. We work for ourselves, for major corporations, small businesses, ad agencies and tech companies. Some of us have bled black and gold since birth, while some of us stumbled upon this city somewhere down the line and made it our home.
No matter where you come from or what you do in the industry, you’re in on our little secret—that Pittsburgh is a great place to build brands and do great work. Whether you’re new to the fast-paced world of advertising or a seasoned professional, the AAF is for you. We’re here to help you advance your career, build your connections and celebrate this ever-changing, amazing industry we work in. If this still sounds like you, we’d love for you to join us soon for a coffee or a libation. We can have a meeting of the minds, create something new, share a client horror story or simply enjoy the company of a new friend and neighbor.
