Club Spotlight
Ad 2 Kansas City:
Winter Highlights

Ad 2 KC Karaoke

Ad 2 KC kicked off the year with a mic drop—literally. Its Board of Directors bonded while belting their hearts out at the mid-year retreat, held at a local karaoke lounge. Later in January, Ad 2 KC hosted its monthly Ad Hops at a local Kansas City agency and were able to introduce some new potential student members to Ad 2 during the event.

Next up, the club is looking forward to the American Advertising Awards—complete with swag sales benefitting its Public Service client. Ad 2 KC will also be holding its annual speed-interviewing internship event, Match KC, at the end of the month!
