Our luncheons offer a great combination of professional development and networking opportunities with great food and fantastic industry insights. Every luncheon features a speaker who is chosen by their ability to offer valuable and professional insight to any aspect of advertising. Additionally, members enjoy free entry to the event! We currently hold these luncheon on the first Friday of almost every month at the Petroleum Club from 11:30am-1pm.

Bring a Friend Program
This initiative was created so our members can bring a business acquaintance to a luncheon who could benefit from joining our club, free of charge. There are only 3 spots available per luncheon and they are on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are a member in good financial standing and are interested in reserving a free guest spot for the next luncheon, send an email to our membership chair here.
One guest per business / membership at a luncheon, please.
Supporting students in their quest to learn and grow as potential advertisers is a core mission for our club. To help assist them, AAF Acadiana is leaning on the support of their members and local businesses to offer students free entry to luncheons through Student Sponsorships. A small commitment of $100 sponsors 9 student spots per luncheon. It is our goal to find a sponsor for each luncheon to offer students continual access to connections with local professionals and education through our speaker's presentations. Please sign up here to becoming our next Student Sponsor!
