Q: I want to join the club. What do I need to do?
A: The SF Ad Club is currently inactive. Due to a downturn in the local economy in the late 90’s, the club’s board of directors decided to suspend activity and shut the local office until such time as there was more local interest and resources available to make the club more viable. Volunteers currently run the web site and mailing list and we also refer people on our mailing list to other organizations’ events.
