Social Media

The Social Media Committee’s goals are to promote awareness of the opportunities available through the Philly Ad Club including events, career and mentorship opportunities, and provide a community for industry professionals to network and learn from one another.

The Social Media committee comprises 2 sub-groups:

Strategy Team: The core committee is responsible for overall strategy and account management, and is made up of individuals from all over the industry representing agencies, brand companies, marketers, creatives and media. This committee is a great fit for strategic thinkers with experience in social media who can bring positive energy and creative ideas. Attendance at monthly strategy meetings is expected.


Social Media Ambassadors: The Ambassadors are a team of social media savvy professionals who provide on-site live social media coverage, including taking photos and live streaming at events. Perfect for individuals who are already attending Philly Ad Club events or have a flexible schedule, and want to get involved but may not have the time to commit to regular strategy meetings.

Interested volunteers should email for more information.
