Ad2 Miami

I woke up feeling a bit serious today, so I want to tell you about a very cool organization that I am a part of.

Ad2 Miami is a sub-division of the Advertising Federation of Greater Miami (AdFed Miami), which is part of the American Advertising Federation (AAF).

The Ad2 Division is comprised of a nationwide network of clubs whose members are employed or interested in advertising and/or public relations, and are 32 years of age or younger. Through a series of monthly events, members of Ad2 can network, attend educational sessions, be involved in, and get a good feel for the industry.

For the past few years, I have volunteered on the Board of Ad2 Miami as Communications Chair. Each year, the Board of Directors follows a rigorous process to select a local non-profit organization to be the focus of our annual Public Service Campaign.

The annual Public Service Campaign is the reason why I participate in Ad2 and is what really sets Ad2 apart from any other Adv/PR organization.

The campaign consists of helping one local non-profit organization without any means for promoting themselves. Efforts can include the development of an advertising plan comprised of television, radio, print, outdoor and interactive, including creative work.  Other efforts include assistance with corporate branding (i.e. logo design, production of collateral materials, PR initiatives, etc.).

The time and effort invested in all this is very real. The results are so gratifying because you know they make a real difference in the lives of many in our community that are not so fortunate.

I encourage you to learn more about A2 Miami, or other organizations in your community. You’d be surprised how much you can help with just the smallest effort!

[…] I like to blame this on the never-ending moving madness, balancing work, school work & other work, and maybe plain old laziness.  But I finally enrolled at the gym in September, and I’ve […]
