Dedicated to marketing professionals.
The American Advertising Federation: Cedar Rapids-Iowa City (AAF: CR-IC) is dedicated to promoting, protecting, and advancing the interests of area advertising companies and professionals. Our members buy, sell, or create advertising, and work in the fields of marketing, public relations, or communications. By offering networking, professional development training, and community service opportunities, AAF: CR-IC is the premiere club serving the needs of area advertising and marketing professionals. AAF’s signature yearly event, the American Advertising Awards (formerly known as the ADDYs), provides an opportunity for local work to be recognized and rewarded and forwarded on to district and national level competition.
