American Advertising Federation: (AAF) The aim of the AAF is to provide thought leadership by discussing the latest trends in technology, creativity and marketing. Protect and promote advertising within all levels of government, and honor advertising excellence.  We do not currently have a school chapter, we recommend students join the professional chapter at the student rate of $55 per year and I especially recommend the AD2Dallas young professional group, their membership is different and costs $75-they consist of young professionals under 30.
