CCNY's AAF Chapter Celebrates Advertising Week: Sept. 27 - Oct. 1

FREE Passes for First 18 "Truly Committed" MCA Majors

Dear MCA Students:

Advertising Week is a few weeks away and it is one of the biggest events of the advertising industry. Therefore, the American Advertising Federation (AAF) chapter of City College would like to invite you to take part in the conferences, workshops, panels and other activities taking place between Sept. 27 and Oct. 1.

For a student rate of just $25, students have access to nearly every event (note some are by invitation only and/or require participants to be 21 or over).


This year, MCA is showing additional support for Advertising Week by offering FREE week-long passes to the first 18 students who sign-up through the department!

The first TRULY COMMITTED 18 students who email Prof. Nancy Tag (ntag@ccny.cuny.edu) or Shahar Ferber (sferber00@ccny.cuny.edu) with their name and email address will be awarded a FREE pass. First, check out the schedule to be sure you can attend a good number of the events.

This is a fabulous offer and great opportunity to get further insight about the industry, develop your personal network and substantiate City College students in the industry. Prof. Tag will announce the winners in the coming weeks, so send your email asap. We look forward to your participation in Advertising Week!
