ABOUT US

We are the Greater San Francisco Ad Club. Born in 1906, and active continually since then, we are a network of like minded creative professionals. We have built an agenda for affecting the future, and a forum for sharing the best and most innovative work in the Bay Area – and by extension, The World. We create communities, we run an awards show that is judged by icons, and that creates real progress in a craft and a career. We create events that allow us all to meet and connect and become one with the most thriving creative community in the business. We are from the agency world, the brand world, the technology world and a vast community of students and emerging creatives. As creative professionals we acknowledge that this place is unique, and that as a part of this community, the work we do should add up to more than just increased shareholder value. We work to support causes that matter, and we affect change by doing what we do best – making messages that spread ideas. We believe firmly that great work that means something makes for interesting careers and larger lives. Let’s meet up. Let’s be GREATER together.
