President’s Message

As the new President of the NJ Ad Club I welcome you to our new website!

This is “the place” to find out about: both upcoming and past events; who’s who on the Board; our membership, which includes agencies, suppliers and individuals; job postings; contact info; galleries of past events and blog posts; how to join; committees and sponsorship opportunities. Read, nominate, register, learn!

The New Jersey Ad Club Board is a busy group of volunteers, working hard to bring you exciting and informative events.

Past events:

In November we had our Annual Advertising Hall of Fame. The newest class of four inductees was nominated by their friends, coworkers, peers… industry insiders. It was held on November 7th from 6 – 9:30 pm at the Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange, overlooking the New York City skyline. Both present and past winners are listed elsewhere and in the dinner journal.

Pure networking: Holiday and Summer. Our Holiday event was held in two locations on December 11th from 5 – 7 pm. The Northern Edition was at McLoone’s Boathouse in West Orange and the Central Edition at the Urban Coalhouse in Red Bank. We also hold summertime get-togethers, but dates and locations are as yet TBD.

Upcoming Events:

On January 28th, 2020, we’ll present our Annual State-of-the-Advertising-Industry Panel Discussion at the Eisenhower Corporate Center in Livingston, NJ from 6 – 8 pm. Each year we cover a different topic and have fascinating and knowledgeable professionals sharing how they got to where they are today and what they learned along the way!

February 27th, 2020, is the date for our third annual Innovation Summit, which is from 5 – 7:30 pm      at BellWorks in Holmdel. Here you can find out about cutting-edge technology that’s being used in the television/video, web and advertising industries. We have pros coming to discuss best practices and new possibilities, along with equipment for demos. The venue is the former Bell Labs site, reconfigured as community and business workspaces and offices. Plan to come early for the tour, and wear comfortable shoes, because this place is BIG!

April 30th, 2020, is Jersey’s Best, at the Embassy Suites in Berkeley Heights. On June 10th, 2020. You must take part in our premier event, the Jersey Awards at The Grove in Cedar Grove. More info on both events coming soon!

Come back to the website often, since we are constantly updating it.
