“So…What is Ad Club exactly?!”

Well, the answer to that question is not very simple.

The Peoria Ad Club is the premiere organization for all advertising and marketing professionals in central Illinois, offering members career development opportunities through idea exchanges, education, networking and recognition of excellence.


We hold a number of events throughout the year, which are coordinated by the Peoria Ad Club Board of Directors. These events include speaker Lunch & Learn events, after-hours networking, special awards banquets, and philanthropy events. The Peoria Ad Club strives to partner with leadership from our parent organization, the American Advertising Federation (AAF), to grow our club in membership and purpose.

Membership with Ad Club Includes AAF Membership

Membership to the Peoria Ad Club is $85 for an individual for the 2017 club year. Costs are less for students and more for corporate members. This includes membership with the AAF as well as our District 6 membership. Membership with the AAF connects you to the entire advertising community and provides you with great opportunities for networking, education, and valuable discounts on the tools that are needed to stay current and successful in the industry.

What is AAF?

AAF educates members on the latest trends in advertising, marketing and government issues with a variety of annual programs. Attendance at the AAF National Conference, Joint Government Affairs Conference, Legislative Training Sessions and the Mosaic Forum provide members with the information necessary to stay current and competitive in the industry.
