Connecting
Mid-Michigan
Advertising Professionals since 1939

Showing old logos of previous iterations of the club.

Originally the Lansing Advertising Club and most recently the Mid-Michigan Creative Alliance, AAF Lansing is the oldest American Advertising Federation chapter in Michigan, and a longtime anchor of AAF District 6.

 

In recent years, the club's membership consisted largely of creative design firms and marketing students, and those audiences will continue to be a major focus of our efforts and attention. But AAF Lansing seeks to restore representation from all agencies and providers involved in advertising and marketing, including printers, promotional products firms, TV and radio stations, outdoor advertising companies, PR houses, newspapers, local magazines, in-house corporate marketing departments, non-profit associations, and other individuals wishing to connect with creative professionals and media outlets.

Our goals are to promote and foster relationships between the many disciplines surrounding advertising and marketing, to connect industry professionals with each other to accomplish great things together, and continue to cultivate relationships with future talent in the area.

Join the Board (or a Committee!)

Our by-laws allow for up to 16 voting members on the board and an unlimited number of volunteers on committees, including the Addy Awards Committee, Membership Committee, Events Committee, and more. But many of our board and committee members moved out of the Mid-Michigan area in 2020-2021, leaving us at our lowest levels in years. With a more robust and vibrant board, we can accomplish more things together!

AAF Lansing meetings are on the second Wednesday of each month at 4:00pm, and are currently virtual due to the recent COVID surge. If you're a member of Mid-Michigan's advertising, marketing, and creative community, we invite you to join our cause!
