Each year, billions of dollars are generated into Maryland’s economy by way of a strong and dynamic advertising community. Since 1918, AAF Baltimore (formerly the Advertising Association of Baltimore) has been the organization for advertising and marketing professionals in our area. Our goal is to bring the advertising community together to acknowledge the importance of our industry not just to clients/advertisers, but to the City and State for the economic impact it brings to them. We accomplish this through educational/professional seminars, workshops and programs, social and networking opportunities, scholarship program for promising advertising students, recognition of excellence through our awards programs including the ADDY Awards, Life Time Achievement Award and the AAF Silver Medal Award, as well as keeping our members up-to-date on legislative issues that confront our industry.
