Description of Regular Meetings/Activities

In the main meetings we collaborate on real life projects and create advertisements for business and other clubs. On top of that, we bring in professional speakers in the industry and take tours of local ad agencies in Des Moines. Along with tours, we create networking sessions with advertising and marketing professionals, including resume, portfolio and professional development workshops. It's the perfect head start into any creative career.

Description of Special Events

Ad Club has an annual Spring Trip where we take students to tour advertising agencies in cities such as: Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Denver, and Dallas. The goal is to experience agency cultures and build connections. It's an awesome opportunity to establish networking skills and be face to face with potential employers. However, the trip isn't just for business. We do find time to do fun activities and explore the city!
