More Than A
We are a community filled with creative minds bound together by a common passion – to help our city and each other reach new potential & growth.
Who we are and what we’re made of.
Founded in 1905, AAF has become the “unifying voice for advertising” with 200 self-run chapters across the United States.
We are the Tampa Bay chapter within the American Advertising Federation, and it is our mission to transform Tampa Bay by empowering the advertising industry and our city’s makers and shakers. We accomplish this through grassroots efforts of local leaders and businesses all working together.
Since 1942 in our sunshine city, AAF Tampa Bay’s intentions are to:
- Promote fellowship, education & career enhancement
- Foster excellence in the industry
- Champion public service causes
- Support a diverse, inclusive industry landscape
- Encourage self-regulation & continuous improvement to raise industry benchmarks
Less Strangers, More Colleagues
We are excited to present two regularly recurring programs, our Tampa Bay on Tap and Tampa Bay for Thought. Both of these networking events are of no charge to our members.
Will the real advertisers please stand up?
AAF Tampa Bay is possible thanks to a volunteer board of motivated professionals from all backgrounds and all over the Tampa Bay area. They lead because they are passionate about the impact of advertising and providing value within the community together.
