committees

Where would we be without you?

It’s true that a committee never wrote a decent ad. But the Advertising Federation wouldn’t be possible without the focused efforts of busy people like you who serve on our committees. Whether your interest centers on social, education, technology or finance, we have a committee (or two) that need you.

The committee chairs welcome the contributions and assistance from all members. Plus it’s a great way to network and help shape the direction of our great club.

Advertising Legacy Project

The purpose of the Advertising Legacy Project committee is to honor and showcase the significant achievements and personal stories in a living, accessible and conspicuous forum. The Legacy committee, with the support of our board and sponsors, are in the process of this repository for students, journalists, visitors and residents of Western Pennsylvania to learn, explore and appreciate the role of advertising and marketing communications in our community and the nation.

Media Auction
Every year, the Advertising Federation, along with the Media Association of Pittsburgh (MAP) conduct the Media Auction. It’s a chance to raise funds and offset costs while also connecting businesses and individuals with valuable media properties and marketing services. The Media Auction has quickly become one of the most successful and anticipated events of our year, and it’s never too early to start cultivating sponsors, contributors and publicity for this coming November.
