Mike Gold - MSU - Bozeman, NASC Team Advisor

Our mission statement lists education as a primary focus for our organizaiton. One of several methods to accomplish that objective is through the National Advertising Student Competition. This year the board voted to invest in college students that are competing in the AAF sponsored competition. Mike and a student will give us the background on the event and give us some general concept of what is coming up. Contest rules prevent too much disclosure but we will get an idea of how MSU Students would promote this year's client, Pizza Hut.

Our 3rd Business, Advertising and Marketing Event

Again in keeping with our mission statement, we invite 100 High School juniors and seniors for our members to give some real world information regarding careers in our industry. Our first session was February 11, 2014, our second October 14, 2014 and now we will take the information from those two events and continue to massage the process to give the attendees the most benefit. We do this at no costs to the school district even picking up the tab for lunch, transportation and substitute teachers.

Holiday Inn - 12:00 PM

I have invited a guest to attend BAM on Tuesday and then speak to the club on Wednesday. I am waiting to see if his schedule will permit this to happen. I think Ad Clubs around the country should be doing BAM in their area. I am not sure I have seen any program that does as well at building on the strenghts of its members to give back to the community. Stay tuned to see if we can put this together.

2015 American Advertising Awards Show

One of the projects we do each year is the American Advertising Awards. We are the Montana Portal for this national competition. The awards show is like the Grammy Awards for creatives. Those of you that have been to the show know what an energized evening it is. Put a couple of hundred creative folks in a beautiful environment, hand out some silver and gold and see what happens. This will be our first meeting in March. Ad Club members get free admission as well as a couple of drink tickets, can you spell WIN? Of course you can, and if not I just did it for you.

could not happen.
