Meetings & Events

Meetings are typically held bi-weekly on Mondays at 7:30 p.m. in Room 100 in the Packaging College

Dates, times, and room assignments may vary slightly due to speaker availability. Meetings usually last around one hour.

All of the meetings will have speakers from the advertising industry. Attending meetings and introducing yourself to speakers is a great way to meet these experienced individuals who can help you understand more about our industry.
Many of them are Michigan State Alumni, so you already have that in common! 

It’s great to learn from somebody who’s been where you were not too long ago!

**Don’t forget to sign the attendance sheet at each meeting you attend!**

Agency Tour Trips

Aside from the bi-weekly meetings, the group also takes one Agency Tour trip each semester. In the Fall, the trip is typically taken to Detroit to tour agencies and see what the city has to offer.  In the spring, a trip is usually taken to Chicago to spend a long weekend and tour portfolio schools and agencies.


Michigan State Advertising Association, along with wanting to further our group members knowledge and experience with advertising, also encourages networking among group members and participating in fundraisers. In order to facilitate this, Advertising Association hosts several events throughout the semester. We encourage all our members to come out and participate. Not only will you earn points towards going on great agency tour trips, but have a great time as well!
