Government Awareness

AAF Austin actively works on behalf of our members to impact legislation that governs the advertising industry. 

Advertising helps generate $531.5 billion – or 15% – of economic activity in Texas. Every $1 million spent on advertising supports 66 Texas jobs. In fact, advertising touches every part of the Texas economy.

Each year, AAF Austin hosts a Day at the Texas Capitol event where participants can learn about the issues affecting the advertising industry and speak directly with legislators about the issues.
