You belong here. We’ll prove it.


We are connected.  We are your tribe. We understand you like no one else does–not even your dog. The AdFed is six degrees of Kevin Bacon on steroids. With over 40,000 members strong nationwide, somebody always knows somebody who knows somebody–who might know Kevin Bacon.

Kevin Bacon - Not an AdFed member, but it would be sweet if he was.


We’re more than who you know. We’re what you know, too. Or rather, what you’ll learn. Each month, we present speakers from across the US, from hot-shot creatives to cutting-edge strategists. Sharpen your skills, learn new stuff, amaze your boss.


It’s game on as West Michigan agencies, freelancers, filmmakers, and corporate communicators battle to the death for a coveted ADDY. (Kidding. Not kidding.) The annual gala event, attended by nearly 500 movers and shakers is an opportunity for exposure like no other.

Still not convinced? There’s more!

Whether we’re networking, educating, entertaining, or rewarding, three core values permeate the AdFed.  These values drive the club and are our foundation. We strive to offer one or more in everything we do.


If you’re looking to connect, there is simply no better choice than the AdFed.  Since we serve the entire advertising industry and not just a niche, you’ll find members from all manner of roles. Make connections, do business, or just talk shop. We keep you connected.


When you win, we all win. When you’re a member, the AdFed lets the world know, through our blog, our social accounts, to the media, and at our events.


Joining the AdFed means you join AAF National. From grassroots activities to lobbying on Capitol Hill, the AAF does what it takes to protect advertisers everywhere. In fact, we’ve defeated taxes on advertising in Congress and more than half the states. As a member, you have a voice in Washington, DC.
