The ARF Young Pros provides a place for working professionals age 30 and under in advertising, marketing, media, research, and branding to network, learn, and lead. Join us for events throughout the year across leadership, professional development, and industry hot topics. Make connections with like-minded peers and get inspired to drive your career.
The Mission of the Young Pros is to engage the next generation of industry leaders as valued contributors to the Advertising Research Foundation, and the research community broadly. We do this by providing leadership opportunities for young professionals within the ARF and by creating opportunities for Young Pros to access the wealth of resources available through the ARF and its members.
Why become a Young Pro today? See what our current ARF Young Pros have to say:
- “I wanted to reach out and thank you and the ARF Young Pros for setting everything up. I had a great time at the event! It was my first, but I’m sure it won’t be my last. I met a lot of great people that I am sure I will connect with again in the future. I can honestly say I left this event inspired and motivated to continue growing as a research professional.”
- “These sessions have been incredibly helpful in my career, and I was able to apply some learnings immediately to my day-to-day job. So thank you for this series!”
- “The Young Pros offers incredible networking. I’ve never been to a bad event or had a bad time.”
