Here’s the quick and easy explanation. AAF-KC is an advertising club in Kansas City, and a member of District 9 of the American Advertising Federation. We’re not the type to brag but it’s safe to say we’re one of the largest AAF clubs in the country. So, we’re a pretty big deal.

Here’s where the story gets a bit tricky.

AAF-KC is one club that houses two more organizations. Ad 2 is an age 32 and under group for ad professionals, and Art+Copy Club is a group designed for creatives, copywriters, designers and the like. Each group is a part of AAF-KC but serve the membership in more specific ways.

For example, Art+Copy Club provides more creatively inclined events, and Ad 2 provides more networking events. Not to say that any of the groups are exclusionary, if you’re an AAF-KC member you’re welcome to come to any soiree or speaking event, after all you’re an AAF-KC member. But the separate clubs were designed to meet members specific needs. Told you it got tricky.

This explanation may be much ado about nothing but at least it gives you a peek into how we’re all one big AAF-KC bent on networking, furthering our ad education as well as our quality of career for our membership.
