Whether you're looking to network, puff up your portfolio and resume, or fulfill your court ordered volunteer hours, we've got plenty of open spots to feed your ulterior motives. Bonus: you get to hang with the best dang ad folks this side of the Snoqualmie Pass.

Check out our positions and if you're interested, send us an email with the following:

#AAFPosse Returns for Summer 2014

AAF Seattle Administrator

SeaTech Connect is back this summer with its series of agency crawls, and AAF Seattle is ready. We'll organize our own #AAFPosse for each of the six outings, giving our members, fans and interested parties a crew to crawl with.

This year there will be three agencies each night, ending at one bar, giving us all a chance to spend more time in each place with less running between agencies. That equals better networking, which is kind of the point.

Whether you join us from the start or catch up with us as we go, you can find us via our check-ins on Foursquare (which we'll mirror to Twitter using #AAFPosse). We'll be the group having a great time.

The first crawl is on Capitol Hill, May 14th, with others spread throughout the summer. We've got them all in our events calendar and in Foursquare lists, and we'll be promoting in advance via social, particularly our LinkedIn group.

New to AAF Seattle? Join in. It's a great way to get to know us!

RSVP and get more info on the SeaTech Connect Meetup page.

Women Work Wonders for AAF Seattle

AAF Seattle Administrator

On International Women's Day 2014 we want to recognize and thank all the women who have come together to make us what we are in this past year.

We've enjoyed so many great women panelists, including our 3% Conference–inspired Women in Creativity, an all-women panel on Cause Marketing, and, finally, women on our Chalk Talk Super Bowl Ad Replay panel (even more women than men!).

We've had so many women attend events, join as members, and support our cause.

And we've had women in charge, from our board, including our president, Renee Peterson, to committee members, to volunteers, all helping shape our identity and making things happen where it matters.

We aspire to recognize creativity and ideas inclusively and to be a truly balanced organization. Thanks to every one of you who has contributed so much!

We Support Signage

AAF Seattle Administrator

We've seen that look. Trust us, you don't want that look.

We've seen that look. Trust us, you don't want that look.

Our Director of Government Affairs, George Riddell, appeared before the Seattle City Council on February 20th to add our voice to the opposition to proposed legislation that would strongly restrict signage on buildings. Despite vigorous debate and the detrimental effects that businesses would suffer if this were to pass, the council will vote on the bill.
