FSC American Advertising Federation students attend conference in Washington, D.C.
LAKELAND, Fla. (Nov. 4, 2008) — Nine members of the Florida Southern College student chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF) attended a two-day conference in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 23-24.
The students, all communication majors, attended sessions on organizing and running a successful student chapter, public service advertising, networking and business ethics. Students networked with working advertising professionals from Washington, D.C., New York and Chicago, who critiqued their resumes and portfolios. They also attended sessions where they learned tips for creating an effective National Student Advertising Competition campaign. Florida Southern College has won this competition at the district level twice in 10 years, excelling over schools such as the Universities of South Florida, Central Florida, West Florida, and North Florida, Florida Gulf Coast University and the University of Miami.
Students attending the conference included:
Kelly E. Brennan, a senior and daughter of Stuart and Doris Brennan of Wrentham, Mass.
