Welcome to AD

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

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 tobe 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, butmore 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 incollege classrooms, there are a multitude of ways to engage and connect (that won’t take hours always from your busy schedule).
