About Lubbock Advertising Federation
Lubbock Advertising Federation (LAF) was founded in 1948 with approximately twenty members, many of whom were professors and students at Texas Tech University. J. Culiver Hill was the club’s first president and first Silver Medal recipient.
The club was known simply as Lubbock Ad Club until 1961 when it became affiliated with the American Advertising Federation (AAF), and the name changed to the Lubbock Advertising Federation. Today the club has more than 100 Lubbock Advertising professionals listed on the membership roster.
