Founded in 1902, AAF Indianapolis was the second advertising club formed in the United States. We’ve since been working hard to lead the way for more than 100 years. In 1902, a group of Indianapolis businessmen got together to found only the second advertising club in the United States. Not only did AAF Indianapolis establish the Better Business Bureau of the United States, we wrote the first national standards for advertising ethics. Today, we continue to champion our dynamic and ever-changing industry. Our biggest event of the year continues to be the American Advertising Awards, which recognizes creative excellence for Indianapolis.AAF Indianapolis is the original and leading advertising organization in the Midwest, and we look forward to leading the way for many years.
