Why Should You Join?

Membership Benefits…what’s in it for you?

Committee Membership
Build new friendships, experiences and skills. AdFed members are eligible to join one of our committees, and work alongside other local professionals to advance our cause. It’s the best way to get the most from your membership and build new relationships, experiences and skills.

Professional Development
Never stop learning. By hosting monthly educational AdBite luncheons, AdFed brings leading industry voices to Bend. As a member, you will receive notification of these events and you can attend at a deeply reduced cost.

Connect across industries. Whether you’re a marketing director, agency creative or media salesperson, you can always benefit from knowing more local professional colleagues. With diverse programming and several special events like the ADDY Awards, KudoMania and quarterly mixers, AdFed gives you several opportunities to rub elbows and exchange business cards.

Whether you want to witness some of our region’s best creative work or prove your own excellence, the ADDY Awards offers an annual opportunity to spend a night with industry peers in celebration of great work. As an AdFed member, your entries and event tickets are deeply discounted. This year’s ceremony has a few exciting changes up its sleeve that should appeal to our ever-evolving membership base. Stay tuned!

Government Relations

Claim your seat at the table. Whether agency based or an advertiser, state and national politics impact our industry and our livelihood. AdFed members have a seat at the table, with information on important policies and taxes that can empower membership to communicate our interests with local representatives, as well as AAF’s national lobbyists serving our interest on Capitol Hill.

Public Service
Give back . Every year, AdFed selects a local public service partner to assist through fundraising and in-kind services. It’s our way of giving back to the community we love.
