club achievement + club of the year

The Club of the Year Competition honors our chapters while also helping prepare the best possible entries for AAF National’s Ovation Awards. The awards are presented annually at Spring Convention.

The five categories are:

Club Operations

Membership Development & Communications

Programs

Cornerstone Events & Initiatives

American Advertising Awards, Diversity & Multiculturalism,

Government Relations, Advertising Education

Public Service

AAF clubs are organized into five membership divisions to ensure equitable competition, as well as facilitate communication and networking among club leaders: A Club of the Year is chosen in each division based on overall excellence as clubs earn points for fulfilling certain criteria throughout the year.

Additionally, a National Club of the Year and National President of the Year award is given by AAF National to a club in each division based on National Club Achievement and Ovation Awards points.

Division I 500+ members
Division II 250-499 members
Division III 100-249 members
Division IV fewer than 100 members
Division V Ad 2 Clubs
