College students are invited to join AAF-Greater Evansville at the reduced membership rate of just $20 per year. Membership is required to apply for AAF-Greater Evansville scholarships. Additionally, a limited number of student members can attend the AAF-Greater Evansville monthly luncheon meetings at no cost thanks to the generous support of individual members and member agencies. AAF-Greater Evansville luncheon meetings present speakers that offer a chance for students to learn about careers, current trends and new developments in the advertising industry. Membership and attendance at AAF-Greater Evansville meetings are a great way to network, and members are very interested in sharing their knowledge with students who want to pursue careers in advertising and related fields. AAF-Greater Evansville also encourages students to get involved in our organization by serving on committees such as the Annual Auction, Programs, Public Service and the American Advertising Awards.
