The Boise Advertising Federation (BAF) is a non-profit volunteer trade organization founded in 1910. The BAF is affiliated with the Idaho Advertising Federation and the American Advertising Federation, linking our members with more than 50,000 advertising professionals nationwide. The Boise Advertising Federation is made up of members in the marketing, advertising, design, web, relationship marketing, mass media and public relation industries. As the oldest trade organization in Idaho, our primary goals are to educate and promote professional development among the membership; and guide and protect the advertising industry from unwanted legislation.
The BAF offers professional development seminars, informative luncheons and industry networking events. Members receive a discount on all events & activities.
We look for ways to give back. Financially, the BAF actively supports advertising education in schools statewide. Talent-wise, we donate our resources to create and direct an annual public service campaign.
We believe in the power of creativity. To this end we host the annual statewide advertising creative show on behalf of the Idaho Advertising Federation. Called the Rockies Awards, the spring show recognizes creative excellence in all areas of advertising throughout the state.
Ever since its beginnings in 1910, the BAF has championed the advertising industry within Idaho. While the definition of advertising had broadened, and the tactics of our discipline have changed greatly since then, our belief in the power of creativity to achieve business success has not.
If you are interested in speaking at a BAF event, have questions on joining the BAF, or would like to get more involved with our organization please drop us a note.
