The activities of the AAF-RDU chapter are represented by two main series, with some inevitable overlap between each group. Administrative records, ADDY competition events and entries, annual reports, and general correspondence are included in the Administrative Materials series. This series includes Accession (2007-0183) and Accession (2008-0125). Accession (2007-0183) includes three binders that detail the activities of the AAF-RDU from 2006-2007. It contains the organization's 2007 annual report, as well as materials from the chapter's public service campaign for the Interfaith Food Shuttle. Accession (2008-0125) includes a broad range of materials from the chapter's ADDY competition, beginning with ADDY event and preparation materials from 2003 and ending with ADDY programs and pamphlets from 2009. Also included are treasurer reports, board meetings, and by-law revisions from 2008-2009. There are also entry forms for the chapter's public service and advertising education ADDY entries from 2008, and some miscellaneous Silver Medal materials, dating 2004-2009. This accession includes several audiovisual materials, including Betacam SPs and DVDs, covering ADDY and Silver Medal awards shows. Also contained in this accession are ephemera from various AAF-RDU events, including two miniature billboards, one oversized ADDY poster, Club Achievement Awards plaques (dating from 1988-1993), crystal awards, and two trophies.
The second series in this collection deals exclusively with the club's public service campaigns, an annual project sponsored by AAF-RDU that involves local advertising students in creating a PSA for a local organization or charity. The Public Service Campaigns series includes Accession (2010-0105), which has records dating from 2004-2008 detailing the application process for both the organizations and the students interested in participating; the development of the campaign; and the final deliverables for each year's project.
