Founded in Spokane
AAF Spokane (American Advertising Federation Spokane) has been serving advertising and marketing professionals in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho for nearly a century. In 1901, three Spokane businessmen set the wheels in motion for the formation of one of the nation’s oldest business ethics groups, the Spokane Advertising Club. These executive pioneers continued on to form the Better Business Bureau Committee, one of the first organizations of its kind. In 1912, the committee affiliated with the national movement and is today known as the Better Business Bureau of Spokane.
Building on this strong foundation, AAF Spokane has evolved to meet the advertising and marketing challenges of the future. Changing to improve the community and be of even greater service to its members by offering programs to enhance business and support of non-profit organizations and to ensure that being a part of AAF Spokane is indeed worthwhile.
