One Club chapters
Bring The One Club’s global network to your city
Our Current Chapters:
The One Club for Creativity champions creatives across the arc of their careers – from student to seasoned pro – and celebrates excellence in advertising and design in all its forms. From the industry’s most prestigious competitions and awards, to high-impact inclusion and diversity programs that are changing the face of the industry, a robust roster of student-focused events that are cultivating the next generation of creatives, and professional development opportunities that allow attendees to take their careers to the next level, The One Club is the place for creative celebration, connection, inspiration and education.
Now you can bring the value of The One Club to your creative community, anywhere in the world, by starting a chapter in your city.
Through compelling (and fun!) in-person events, chapters bring advertising and design professionals together, provide a spotlight for local and regional talent, and connect communities to The One Club’s global network of creatives, resources and ideas.
Each chapter is spearheaded by one “lead” who serves as the primary point of contact with The One Club HQ. The lead signs a 12-month licensing agreement with HQ, then builds a team of volunteers who together plan and run regular monthly creative events, and spread the word about the organization’s mission and activities. Teams are responsible for all aspects of event planning and execution, sponsorship, and marketing. The One Club HQ provides an arsenal of tools, resources and support to ensure chapters and teams thrive.
We’re looking for leads and teams, who are passionate about driving their creative communities forward and supporting the mission of The One Club, to start chapters in cities around the world. (Right now, we’re looking for leads in cities with populations of 450,000 or more.) This is an unique opportunity for enthusiastic One Club members to develop leadership skills, support the industry, and make a name for themselves outside of their agencies.
If you’re interested in starting a chapter or learning more, email Sarah Shanks, Membership Manager. In your email, please include your name, city, agency and title, along with the reason(s) your city would benefit from a One Club chapter and why you’re the right person to lead the charge.
