Everyone needs a network. Ad people are no exception. That's why the Capital Region's leading ad professionals came together in 1961 to found the Albany Ad Club Association of Professional Communicators. Ever since then, professionals in advertising, PR and marketing have built their networks and their careers through The Ad Club.

Today, The Ad Club is a member of the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the nation's oldest national advertising trade group—and the only one representing all facets of the industry.

So what do we do? We educate our members. We celebrate the contributions of our giants. We help students get their careers started. We provide every kind of forum for you to build your network and know your profession. We give out ADDY Awards. We have ridiculous amounts of fun.

Bottom line, we help you move your career forward. It's what networks do.

The Ad Club is a 501.c.6 not-for-profit corporation.
