Ad Ties

Welcome to AD Ties. AD Ties is a new community of college students and working professionals.  Our goal is to connect students entering the advertising world with industry experts through unique mentorship and ongoing speaking opportunities. 

To find out more about taking a student to lunch or speaking opportunities at local colleges, please fill out the form below and we will contact you at the launch of the program starting Fall Semester 2017.



We have heard the voices of the industry community, and have noticed that there is a gap between our college students and advertising and marketing industry professionals.  American Advertising Federation of Orange County (AAFOC) is dedicated to curating community to foster opportunities of growth and development and equally invested in creating a solution for our community.

So, how do we tie these communities together? 

AD Ties is currently looking for professionals in the advertising or marketing industry with a passion for connecting, empowering, enriching, educating and mentoring the next generation of young industry professionals.

YOU are part of the solution. 

We invite you to be part of this revolutionary method of driving rich learning and development for both mentees and mentors.  Not only are we wanting to promote career development, but more importantly we hope to establish long lasting connections tying together the communities and offering value for all involved. 

Through our “Take a Student to Lunch Program” or our networking of speaking opportunities in college classrooms, there are a multitude of ways to engage and connect (that won’t take hours always from your busy schedule). 

Want to learn more?  Please reach out to Riley Insko, AD Ties Program Coordinator at  EMAIL US.

Presenters at AAFOC events and classes are selected by our event committees in conjunction with AAFOC staff. If we find a fit between your proposal and the event’s theme, we will contact you about potential opportunities to speak.
