Come for the party, stay for the people.

Membership has some real perks.

Joining AAF as a member gives you the opportunity to connect with your peers at unique and thoughtful events. To gain inspiration and professional wisdom from renowned guest speakers.

Whether you work independently, at an ad agency, in-house, in school or as a consultant, we want you to join us in making the entire advertising community of Memphis a better and more unified one. Whether you are creative, accounts, media, production, interactive, research or all of the above, we have a membership level to fit you and your employees. If not, let us know and we’ll create one. That’s how much we want you to be a part of what we’re doing.
