Metropolitan Washington, DC, hosts the greatest concentration of power and influence on the planet. Some of the District’s smartest people work as communications professionals—for advertising and public relations firms, government agencies, corporations and media companies. Every day these talented and innovative professionals launch new strategies, messages, programs and campaigns—crafted to connect with DC’s own highly informed audience and with specific audiences around the country and around the world.

Washington, DC communications professionals impact the way America thinks and acts. They change opinions. They make big things happen. But do other business leaders inside and outside the market truly see the impact our industry has on America? Not always.

On behalf of the 2005 Advertising Week DC Steering Committee and the Ad Club of Metropolitan Washington, I invite you to join with us to raise awareness within the area and the country regarding the world-class marketing communications resources in the Washington, DC, region. I promise we’ll have some fun and learn something along the way.
